Cinderella and Juliet commiserate about romantic love, happily ever after and what went wrong with their marriages in this much performed ten minute play.

This ten minute play has roles for three women.

"...literary figures become intertwined in contemporary relationship dilemmas and the audience finds out what happened following the mistaken assertion "And they lived happily ever after." For instance, who would have guessed Prince Charming would lose interest when he found out that Cinderella's (Cindy's) stepmother wasn't really wicked, but was only portrayed as such to make her character sympathetic? Or that Romeo and Juliet were none other than a couple of rebellious teenagers? Writer Bruce Kane cleverly puts a modern spin on the old stories that make them less fairy tales and more every day life." Vermont Times

"In The Masochism Tango, playwright Bruce Kane twists and tortures clichés into a deliciously seductive dance – literally, a dance – in which a man and a woman can only find satisfaction by not being satisfied. Yeah, I know, it sounds preposterous (and it is), but the surreally logical script, director Bryan Rasmussen’s inventively physical staging, and J. Teddy Garces and Jossara Jinaro’s fiercely intense performances result in a fiercely funny ten minutes." Dan Berkowitz, L.A, Post
