If Patrick L. Suarez didn’t write The Night Holly Twyford Faked Me Out for Jonathan Tindle, he should have. Tindle is a captivating chameleon of an actor, unrecognizable from one performance to the next. For this one-man show, he dons the black suit, brogue, and jawline of an Irish-Canadian who sips from a bottle of Jack Daniel’s while recounting his emotionally clumsy life. The piece develops into a self-mocking confession of the man’s loss—of his lifeblood via Crohn’s disease, of his philandering father from AIDS, of the love of his life to another man, and of every woman he has dated. Suarez plans to give local actress and inspiration Twyford her say in the second installment of the play, which may become a trilogy linking her and Tindle in the final episode. The scene is set at 4 p.m. Sundays and 8 p.m. Mondays to Nov. 24 at State of the Union, 1357 U St. NW. $15. (301) 738-7073. (Ginger Eckert)
