Hollywood Fringe shines a light into dark corners that might be best left unexplored, but “Cockroach Dialogues,” written by William Whitehurst and directed by Andy McQuade is simply delightful. It is at turns funny and grave. It’s thought-provoking and dynamic with solid performances and witty dialogue. Talent? Luck? Where’s the food? ... full review

A cockroach I wrote a funny song about once got me a spot on the Disney Channel. So I have to admit I'm prejudiced. Even so, like Kafka before me, I anthropomorphized the insect.

If the world was destroyed in war and destruction, the cockroach would be the singular survivor. Welcome to the dreams of one struggling actor whose reality is wrecked by the Cockroach Dialogues. Mark Binet is Wayne, a guy who moved to LA with his singer girlfriend Tea (Asia Lynn Pitts) to make their dreams of being stars come true. However, with little money coming in due to a lack of work and their hunger, for both food and a break, growing stronger and more desperate by the minute, Wayne becomes plagued by dreams of a giant cockroach who talks to him. As Wayne argues with the cockroach over food, Tea meets her own version of a cockroach as Bob (Andy McQuade), a sleazy record producer who offers Tea a lunch date with a hotel room desser... full review

Liked the cockroach concept more than the relationship drama. Would like to see a 45 minute show of just the cockroach riffing on life and those "buttery toast crumbs"....... full review
