Vincent Caruso’s book The Space, is based on his first full length play which premiered at the New York International Fringe Festival. His two other full length plays, Countdown, and Leftovers, was presented at the Midtown International Theater Festival. Countdown, critically acclaimed, "a remarkable screwball comedy with grit," is about an Italian family in Bensonhurst. Leftovers, an engrossing drama about the lives of three promiscuous men, mirrors a sort of Manhattan version of “Queer as Folk.” He has produced many short plays at the LGBT center in New York City. His short piece, Lemon Kisses, dealing with bullying and self-esteem was seen at the LGBT center, The Wings Theater, and most recently aired on Brooklyn Cable Access Television. Sugar Bait was presented at the LGBT center, and the Samuel French Short Playwriting Contest. Vincent Caruso’s hilarious one man show, staring himself, Sister-Mary Sister-Mary Sofa was seen at Dixon’s Place 2012 Hot Festival and also at East End Stables in the East Hamptons. Vincent is a graduate of William Esper Studios, having studied with Maggie Flanigan.

What starts out as a slow and edgy bit of an obnoxious beginning leads you into this fast pacing story of an honest man caught up in a world of addictions. The drag aspect of it kind of took me by surprise – but I got it. I think a lot of gay men in particular can relate to this material dealing with challenging relationships and friendships. I also think it’s the author’s crazy sarcastic humor that makes this book a very special read indeed. Highly recommended!
