Manusarts presents – Lovers, Authors and other other Strangers

„I’d like to have a martini, two at the very most. After three I’m under the table, after four I’m under my host.“ – Dorothy Parker
Sex and the City meets the classics. Great American humour at it’s best. New York City is of course the centre of the Universe, so are the three blonde divas circling around one good looking man, competing in a passionate pile of comedy. A humorous evening presenting short stories, scenes and parodies by Dorothy Parker, Woody Allen and other comedian masters, who know how to turn bittersweet into fabulous laughter and finely define the difference between male and female.
