DJ Ass Maggots’s wonderful review of “Siren Call”


I’m here live at the Fringe Festival in Hollywood. Just saw the 30-minute play ‘Siren Call’ by Jola Cora.

So, this dysfunctional romantic couple breaks into the home of a famous celebrity and takes her hostage. I won’t spoil it for you, but I can say that this quick play is ENTERTAINING. Witty, referential, sexy, and scary, this minimalist three-person critique of the idea of celebrity challenges our incessant worship of movie stars. (Don’t act like you don’t have a favorite!)

As an audience, we hung on every line, like a sit-com. And the actors were so close we could touch them. In fact, I feel like I might have been an accomplice to a crime.

And they have an after party right after the show! I’m still recovering…

The Swiss-Italian-Polish playwright-actor-director-filmmaker-Renaissance woman Jola Cora (or Jla Cra, as she is known by her squad) has honed her skills from previous cerebral works now down to the plebes like us, so that we may also enjoy, with quick jokes and edgy plot twists, while the erudite intelligentsia can still debate Sharon Tate, Sisyphus, and post-modern socio-economonic constructs.

“We used to worship the stars in the sky, now we worship the stars on the sidewalk.”

Siren Call at the Hollywood Fringe Festival

Siren Call is a short play version of a feature film script I started writing years ago. I am now producing a stage version of it for the Hollywood Fringe Festival as a showcase for a full version and a feature film.


“The siren call is driving me to my end, like a ship to wreck on rocks”.


Two frustrated actors accidentally kidnap their favorite movie star… or is it really her? What is identity in a world where myths are stronger than we dare think?


We open June 7

Full schedule:
