Loë Rieman in The Singing Forest 2009
Character Is A Phone Sex Operator
The Singing Forest is a play by Craig Lucas (not to be confused with the film of the same name). The plotline is so convoluted; it would take too long to explain here. What I can say is that Olympia Dukakis plays a Jewish phone sex operator. During World War II, her character fled Austria and came to America. Before she escaped, her character set off a chain of events that would come back to haunt her in the present day. No clips of this play are available on-line
