About Half Baked

Retired brothers Jay and Sonny Allen move to central Florida with their wives Martha and Veronica to open a cafe. When the business starts failing and their nest egg dries up, they take drastic action to try to generate some cash. Action that includes murder for life insurance money, pod casts and baking cannabis into the appetizers to ‘stimulate’ business!

However, when Martha’s old boyfriend, detective Marty Minkoff as well as Nadia, a fortysomething Latvian loan shark whom Jay owes money to, arrive on the scene, things get complicated! Throw into the mix a twenty-something millennial who’s never heard of Elvis Presley, but sounds and acts exactly like him, and you soon have a recipe for hilarity!…Joe Simonelli’s plays have been delighting audiences in the U.S, Canada and the U.K. since 2001.

HALF BAKED (A Farcical Farce) by Joe Simonelli and Lori Jean Sigrist is produced with permission from the author.
