Lifeboat Dahling!
A comedy by Bert Bernardi & Joe Landry

Join us for the world premiere reading of this new comedy inspired by the Alfred Hitchcock film and the golden age of Hollywood filmdom. Set on the turbulent high seas of World War II, glamorous world-renowned journalist Connie Collins finds herself fighting for life along-side nine oddball survivors. When the conniving captain of a Nazi U-boat is rescued, tempers flare, passions ignite and legs are amputated! A comedy of titanic proportions kept afloat by a touch of camp and wicked comic daring. WTNH news anchor Ann Nyberg will host and introduce the show.

This is the first collaboration of the writing team. Mr. Bernardi is book and lyricist of over a hundred musicals for young audiences including acclaimed adaptations of Elise Primavera's Auntie Claus, Mini Grey's The Adventures of Dish and Spoon and Robert D. San Souci's Cinderella Skeleton (all featuring music by Scott Simonelli). He is the recipient of the Connecticut Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Contribution to Theatre. Mr. Landry's published plays include It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, Vintage Hitchcock and Reefer Madness.
He is founder of Second Guess Theatre Company, member of the Dramatist Guild and teaches playwriting at Sacred Heart University

This public reading of Lifeboat Dahling is the part of the play's developmental process in preparation for a staged reading for potential producers in New York City in early 2011 and is produced by Pantochino Productions.
