“Finally, Some Privacy” Aimee Levey’s One-Woman Show

Hollywood Fringe 2017

Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017By Ernest Kearney — Well, I suspected I was going to like Finally, Some Privacy Aimee Levey’s one woman show when I heard the singing of Jack Lukeman being used as pre-show music.

Lukeman attended the 2016 Fringe and was my pick as one of the top shows, and as they both hail from Ireland the selection of his tunes by Levey for her one woman show is understandable.

To be more precise, Levey’s one woman and three corpses show.

The show commences with a young Irish gal sitting at a kitchen table with the plastic-wrapped bodies of her three roommates lying about her.

Well former roommates, all done in by her own hand; a German, Spaniard and French national.

Now, she had reason for her murder spree, one shuffled all the time, another smelled “like a ham that’s been left out in the Sahara Desert” and the third was just French!

Fringe Award-Gold Medal-The TVolutionWhat Levey treats us to is a rich and entertaining cascade of words as the murderess tries to explain to the murdered the reasons for her homicidal rampage, which she doesn’t fully understand herself.

The piece works on one level as an intriguing metaphor of Ireland’s status as a powerhouse in the EU, and on another as a Celtic feminist Tell-Tale-Heart.  Though way funnier than the Poe version.

A GOLD MEDAL.

It was produced at the NPT Theater in Ashland, Oregon and Los Angeles’ celebrated Odyssey Ensemble Theatre. His following play, “The Little Boy Who Loved Monsters” was produced at The Hollywood Actors Theater, where he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times for his “…inordinately creative writing.” The play went on to numerous other productions including Berlin’s The Black Theatre under the direction of Rainer Fassbinder who wrote in his program notes of Kearney, “He is a skilled playwright, but more importantly he is a dangerous one.” Ernest Kearney has worked as literary manager or as dramaturge for among others The Hudson Theater Guild, Nova Diem and the Odyssey Ensemble Theatre, where he still serves on the play selection committee. He has been the recipient of two Dramalogue Awards and a finalist or semi-finalist, three times, in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition.
