About Before The Drugs Kick In

Extended! The Edinburgh Fringe Hit moves to THEATERLAB for 8 performances in March.

A 62-year-old woman in an insane asylum closes her eyes and becomes a 28-year-old stand-up comedian with everyone in the audience being part of her imagination including you.

Inspired by personal experience, the delivery (not material) of Dave Chappelle, Christopher Nolan films, Netflix's Russian Doll and HBO's Hacks, the show is an intimate blend of stand-up, theatre and time travel starring NYC comedian and actress Maria DeCotis* (Broadway, Vogue, Rolling Stone) as comedian Lynn T. Walsh.

Before The Drugs Kick In made its world premiere at the 2023 Edinburgh Festival Fringe to multiple five and four star reviews while being nominated for two of the festival's biggest awards, the BBC Writersroom Popcorn Award for Best New Writing and the Mental Health Foundation Fringe Award.

Presented by TLAB Shares, this will be the play's third New York City extension following 10 performances at UNDER St. Marks and 15 performance at the Court Square Theater.

Before The Drugs Kick In is dedicated to anyone, especially young mothers of the 80s, 90s and early 2000s, who society wrote off as crazy instead of giving them an opportunity to live. The play is written, directed and produced by comedian and playwright Mike Lemme with movement direction by Mandy Gordon.
