“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 and confusing; it would take too long to explain here. What I can say is that Olympia Dukakis plays Loë, a Jewish phone sex operator. During World War II, her character fled Austria and came to America. But before she escaped, Loë sets off a chain of events that would come back to haunt her in the present day.

The New York Times wrote of Olympia’s performance:

“Ms. Dukakis’s Loë is a dryly funny portrait of a troubled woman who ignores her glaring psychic flaws by immersing herself in other people’s.”
