Sylvia and Selma

A little history

This is the story of half sisters, Sylvia McDougal (Thomas Falborn) of Donegal Ireland and Selma Blingowitz (Tess La Bella) of Boca Raton, Florida. The sisters, having no knowledge of each other, are shocked to find upon the death of Seamus McDougal, their biological father, that they are intimately and genetically linked.

You see, Sylvia’s dear old dad, who was an international prophylactic salesman met Selma’s mom on a kibbutz in Israel. Selma’s mom Shirley, finding herself single and pregnant, moves to America. Seamus leaves the bulk of his estate to his bastard child Selma, instead of his 12 sons and Sylvia. Sylvia upon hearing that she has been royally screwed sets off to find her half sister in America, a place she only dreamt of visiting.

In a new venture, Tess brings her love of children’s books to Storytime With Tess – a You Tube channel launched with award-winning author, Petrell Marie Ozbay. Along with grade school cohost and vocalist, Reina Ozbay, the project promotes early reading and picture books through folksy fun and whimsy.
