Rhode Islander Kevin Broccoli is a prolific playwright who is emerging as a dynamic force in the American theater. He tells stories about families and the conflicts which bind them together or force them apart. Many of his plays are set in the cities of Rhode Island.

His latest new work, THE DINER AND MR. STONE, will be staged at Mixed Magic Theatre in Pawtucket, from October 16th to November 9th. The play, directed by Mixed Magic Artistic Director Jonathan Pitts-Wiley, features Ricardo Pitts-Wiley as Mr. Stone, the owner of a small Providence diner and Hannah Lum as Karen, a successful Silicon Valley businesswoman. Father and daughter struggle with a complicated relationship and family secrets are revealed following a funeral where Karen has cursed and slapped another woman.

Not all things are what they seem on the surface for both father and daughter as this exciting drama unfolds and challenges the notions of what we really want to know about ourselves  and others.

This will be the second launching of a new play by Kevin Broccoli at Mixed Magic Theatre, whose artistic partnership has resulted in multiple successes. One such success was the award-winning play in 2013, “The House in Providence,” Broccoli’s “kitchen play” adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya,” set in modern-day Providence. “Diner” hails from the same fictitious universe – only this time, Broccoli has conjured up new characters in a very different sort of kitchen.
“I wrote ‘The Diner and Mr. Stone’ with Mr. Pitts-Wiley and Hannah Lum in mind,” Broccoli said. “After I witnessed how Jonathan Pitts-Wiley brought ‘The House in Providence’ to life, I knew I had to write a full-length play solely for Mixed Magic. To be able to have these two actors and this director working on something I’ve written is such a gift, and I can’t wait for the rest of the state to see it.”
