About this project

We had a fantastic premiere at the Celebration Theater as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival. We want to continue our run of our original one-act drama, POISON APPLE. We'll be in Space 916 in Hollywood for July and then in alternative spaces: a downtown loft apartment and personal residences for August.

POISON APPLE is a one-act play written by Sean Galuszka and inspired by true events that took place in NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen. This tragic love story follows two men who are forced to confront their innermost demons and take unimaginable action in this darkly suspenseful, sexy psycho-thriller.

Who wields the poison apple and who will take a bite?

Some Audience Review Comments from the Hollywood Fringe Festival Premiere on June 22!

"My heart was literally pounding the last 15 minutes of this truly spellbinding one-act."

"Sexual and thrilling; a Hitchcockian game of cat and mouse with a Grimm twist.  And the ending, well, the ending you’ll need to see to believe!"

"Packs a wallop of drama, biting humor, and surprising pathos in its brisk 70 minutes.  Galuszka’s script brilliantly keeps us uncertain, guessing and even gasping at one crucial point. Mr. Sams and Mr. Galuszka sustain such intensity and work beautifully together as to have one forget they are actually watching a play."

"Sean Galuszka's psychological drama, inspired by a true story, takes an unnerving look at ennui and paranoia in the modern urban jungle. His one-act play focuses on the harrowing interactions between two characters grappling with myriad insecurities and fears of emotional commitment. Driven by dark humor, the script seems... a smartly observed portrait of an unusual relationship between two social misfits."
