Me & George Play by Leslie Dillen

Post by Katiedot on Thu 06 Mar 2014, 10:25

Just came across this play, written by an extra on the Perfect Storm:


Me & George

Shy Clooney admirer, in her middle years, has encounters with George on the set of “The Perfect Storm” but can’t speak to him. He reminds her of another George, her imaginary husband from childhood. The story ricochets in time and between the movie set and the heroine’s fantasy life. As filming progresses, contact with both Georges becomes problematic, and our heroine, with only humor and fantasy for weapons, battles her aging identity.

Read sample pages from ME & GEORGE HERE

“A poignant, hilarious glimpse into both a personal
and civic psyche.”
— USA Today

“Witty, highly watchable”
— The Scotsman, Edinburgh

“Pick of the Week”
— at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,London Times

“Hilarious one-woman monologue.”
— Boston Globe/North

“Inventive…riveting.. like anything by Spalding Gray, ME & GEORGE starts by being funny before heading into a darker direction.”
— The Boston Globe

“A potent evening…a terrific showcase for her talent as a writer and actress.”
— The Boston Herald

“Best One Woman Show of the Year: Leslie Harrell Dillen’s “Me and George.” Eve Ensler was the most high profile one-woman performer of the year but more impressive was Leslie Harrell Dillen’s “Me & George”. The George of the title is George Clooney, as writer-actress Dillen detailed her real life experiences as a stand-in on “The Perfect Storm” at the same time that she happened to be going through a midlife crisis. It’s hard to tell what’s more impressive, Dillen’s sharp and perceptive writing, or her skillful acting.”
—The TAB, Boston
