NY Summerfest: Two Woman House Keeping the Status Quo

NY Summerfest: Two Woman House Keeping the Status Quo

Two Woman House by Yating Sun follows the story of Rin (Nicole Arcieri) and Emma (Rachel Navarro), who are best friends (or are they lovers) and serial killers. Rin is methodical and has a set plan on how to kill the loving couples, they lure to their apartment for dinner and wedding planning. Emma is impulsive, which is bound to have side effects. Until tonight they have always killed together. Has this been a long time in coming or is this just a random act? This short play will have you seeing inside the mind of female killers.

Ms. Arcieri and Ms. Navarro are well suited to their roles and make us want to know more about their characters.

Ms. Sun has a way with dialogue, making the macabre seem like everyday life. For being in a short play festival, I would love to see this work expanded into a full length production. I can really see this as a black comedy film such as “Serial Mom,” “Thelma and Louise” or “Romy and Michelle” Gone Bad. There is a lot to explore here.

My only critique would be; I would have kept the body in another room and just left Emma drenched in blood to tell the story. They can still discuss how to get her out of the room she is in.

Geoffrey Kinsey-Christopher’s stage managing, Myan Sebastien’s lighting and especially Quanda Dublin’s sound design were are all first rate.

This is truly a show that is twisted, disturbing and chilling, but that’s because there are elements here that could make this the next hit reality TV show.  I look forward to seeing what Yating Sun does next.

Two Woman House: Summerfest, Hudson Guild, 411 West 26th Street. Last performance Sunday 7/16 @ 8:30.
