                                                              "Jitters" by David French
                                                                 
Directed by Jay Desiderio 

        The play Jitters is a backstage comedy by Canadian playwright David French. Within minutes, the audience is plunged into the world of theatre- larger-than-life personalities, easily bruised egos, contradictory interpretations of role and script- complicated by faulty props, close quarters, lost lines, and bad reviews, and all magnified by the opening night “jitters” of cast, crew, writer, and director. First performed in 1979 Jitters was an instant critical and commercial success, and in the years since it has proved to be one of Canada’s most enduring and popular plays, both here and abroad. 

Jitters is an almost perfect comedy of its kind.” -New York Times (Mel Gussow)

Jitters is the happiest case of stage fright I have ever encountered.” -New York Post (Clive Barnes)

Jitters is witty, affectionate, bitchy; bitterly touching. French handles a complicated idea with a great sophistication.” -Toronto Star (Gina Mallet)
