Half Baked, a Comedic Play by Central Park Players

March 8th, 9th, 15th, & 16th at 7:30pm and March 17th at 2:30pm
Cental Park Players is pleased to be producing the new play HALF BAKED (A Farcical Farce) by Joe Simonelli and Lori Jean Sigrist. We are proud to have been the first to license this production and to be a part of it’s rolling World Premiere this season. Joe Simonelli also wrote Old Ringers, an audience favorite from our 2019-2020 season. Retired brothers Jay and Sonny Allen move to central Florida with their wives Martha and Veronica to open a café. When the business starts failing and their nest egg dries up, they take drastic action to try to generate some cash. Action that includes murder for life insurance money, pod casts and baking cannabis into the appetizers to ‘stimulate’ business! However, when Martha’s old boyfriend, detective Marty Minkoff as well as Nadia, a forty-something Latvian loan shark whom Jay owes money to, arrive on the scene, things get complicated! Throw into the mix a twenty-something millennial who’s never heard of Elvis Presley, but sounds and acts exactly like him, and you soon have a recipe for hilarity!…Joe Simonelli’s plays have been delighting audiences in the U.S, Canada and the U.K. since 2001.
