PRINCES DON'T LIVE IN CYBERLANDtheatre · once upon a reality productions · Ages 16+ · 55 mins · United States ·
Once upon a time, there was a girl who was raised on every Disney Fairy Tale. In her quest to find her prince, she made every mistake in the book…but with the help of a mother who has been married for 31 years, and a grandmother who broke all the rules, Erika’s about to learn that ‘Happily Ever After’ still exists.
“Princes Don’t Live in Cyberland” is a 3-woman show based on the true fairy tale of a 26-year-old cat lady named Erika Jenko. The show was written/directed by Erika, and has been seen at the ComedySportz Theatre (Hollywood), Actor’s Circle Theatre (West Hollywood) and The Grand Central Art Center (Orange County).
The play is told by the voices of three generations of women: Erika, her mother and her grandmother. Erika is a girl whose first job was at the Disneyland Resort. Her last boyfriend was Peter Pan. Mom married the first love of her life after accidentally bumping into him at a bar. They’ve been married for 31 years. Gramma remarried twice. She refuses to sleep in the same room as her husband. These three women are about to prove that ‘Happily Ever After’ still exists.
On my thirty third birthday, I revisit my "comical" life events. Surviving three wars in the Middle East, losing my virginity in a brothel, courtesy of uncle Fady! Finally moving to Los Angeles where I perpetually try to balance sex, Catholic guilt, family and auditions, basically my own internal wars.
