Dear Capital Fringe,
Hello Capital Fringe, I do hope you are doing well, as I am doing just fantastic. Well, I am reaching out to you to inquire about your Thanksgiving. As I, Jackie-O, would like to cordially invite you to the annual Pasqual family Thanksgiving. This is going to be one dinner you will not forget, filled with delicious food, expensive libations, and of course, let us not forget, me! Come join my family, as we celebrate the great American tradition of Thanksgiving and give thanks for everything our lord and savior has given us, particularly our families.
Many of you have heard rumors of my recent, episode travels. I am most gracious for all the love and support from my friends and family. I also want to clarify that I am doing exceedingly well. I am completely sane happy and my family is thriving after the recent departure of my father. I once again thank you for all the love.
But back to Thanksgiving, shall we. Dinner will promptly begin at seven pm sharp with a toast of our finest Liebfraumilch. Please RSVP at www.capitalfringe.org and indicate how many people will be in attendance. RSVP quickly I need to approve check who is coming. We do not want any unexpected visitors.
I really hope to see you all present. I promise it is all going to be okay. Let us have some deadly fanciful fun. And remember… We all have our secrets.
Jackie-O is the main character in the 2016 Capital Fringe show The House of Yes by Wendy Macleod. The House of Yes is dark comedy about a wealthy family of DC with no rules. With the original play adapted into a movie in 1997 with Parker Posey, it quickly became a cult classic with it’s crazy dialogue and zany characters. THE Theatre Company is proud to present this crazy play with a formidable cast of actors, great creative team, and fan-fucking-tasic director Strother Gaines of last years sold-out hit Ambien Date Night. We all have out secrets. Some families just have more than others!
