World Is My Cheesecake, He

Synopsis:
This is an evening of 7 unrelated short plays by Daniel Damiano, blending the surreal, the absurd and the outlandish with social commentary, culminating in a funny, moving, and thought-provoking evening of theatre. Through this multi-course evening, the World Is My Cheesecake covers much terrain; from a man's quest to find the cause of his ridiculously short attention span, to a stoic motivational speaker's moment of vulnerability, to two men's desperate need to deflect their loneliness, to a woman's reaction to her long-time boyfriend's profound question, to a most unusual tea gathering between two english women, to a senior couple's trials in dealing with their newly diagnosed illnesses and, finally, to a couple's culinary quest that ultimately becomes a reflection of their marriage.
