Gangster Apparel
Gangster Apparel
By Richard Vetere.

Cast: 2m. "A madcap spoof of gangster movies." (N.Y. Times) Smalltime hoods Louie and Joey are about to go out on the hit of a lifetime. But Louie tells Joey that clothes make the man and his lack of style is holding back their careers. To Louie, style is everything: the suits you wear, your haircut, the way you hold your gun. Dressed to perfection, they go out on the hit- a big success, except that they are identified by an eyewitness who remembers Joey's snazzy yellow pocket handkerchief! Locked in a cell, Louie decides that they're not going to spend 25 years to life in orange prison jumpsuits. Louie spills all to the feds about "the Boss" and gets himself and Joey into a witness protection program- unfortunately it's in a remote section of Arizona where the fashion statement is jeans, plaid shirts and boots! Joey thrives there; Louie is miserable and, through an indiscreet phone call, leads the Boss' hit men to them. A play about friendship, betrayal and the battle of style over substance. "Offbeat charm and lots of laughs." (Cleveland Plain Dealer) Three simple sets.
