Dynamic Duos



Guest host Denis O’Hare presents a program that features great two-hander stories, each performed by a pair of actors that bring out the best in them. In “The Trip” by Bruce Jay Friedman, a young man is mortified when his over-the-top mom decides to accompany him to his first day at college. Santino Fontana and Julie Halston have fun with this social nightmare. The stakes are bigger in Lorrie Moore’s “Foes.” A world-weary liberal writer making a reluctant appearance at a charity dinner is seated with a rabid conservative. Kyle MacLachlan and Joan Allen skillfully navigate this delicate minefield.
