Tales of the Lost Formicans - GPTC PlayFest 2012
Written by Constance Congdon
Directed by Cindy Melby Phaneuf
Music composed/performed by The Answer Team
Set designed by artist Littleton Alston
Narrated by a group of alien archaeologists, the play follows a suburban family sliding into dysfunction as the patriarch succumbs to Alzheimer's disease, a daughter moves back home after leaving her husband and her son runs away and ends up sleeping in shopping malls. Tripping over their own efforts, the family's search for love parallels the quest of alien visitors to understand our absurd human world.
A lone prairie hill overlooking a sea of encroaching suburban houses sets the stage for the lost characters of Tales of the Lost Formicans as they struggle to find their place in a shifting world.
The Great Plains Theatre Conference is presented by Metropolitan Community College.
