From 5 Plays To See In San Diego In October (KPBS feature):

Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel's late-'90s work, "The Mineola Twins" is a great showcase for a gifted comedic actress, and local Samantha Ginn is up for the challenge. Ginn plays both Myrna and Myra, "almost identical" twins as they navigate entirely different outlooks during multiple decades of the women's movement in America from the mid-1950s through the first Bush administration. That alone is quite the task, and toss in the complicated acting (and costume changes) associated with swapping between Myra and Myrna, this promises to be a wild one to watch. Directed by Moxie cofounder Jennifer Eve Thorn, the cast is rounded out by three more actors who also portray multiple characters (Emily Jerez, Phillip Magin and Desireé Clarke).

COVID information: Proof of vaccination or proof of negative PCR test within 72 hours. Guests under 12 not allowed. Masks required in the theater.

--Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS

From the theater: One dirty sock might end it all. Myrna and Myra are ALMOST identical twins with very different world views. When one sock crosses the threshold of their separate lives, a battle ensues that races through the Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan/Bush years in this delicious comedy that dives into the brasiers of the ultra-conservative and ultra-liberal to find… boobs on both sides.
