Outside The Box
Stone Soup Theatre presents its second original one act play festival, Outside the Box, Thursdays through Sundays, May 22 June 1. Ten northwest playwrights wrestle with characters that live, or are influenced by situations, outside traditional mores - be it physical, mental, spiritual. In The Genius Room by Nicola Pearson, God is getting in the way of a technician protecting a brain under construction from stray bread crumbs. In Carl Nelsons Ollies Day Out, A crazy Ollie, 84, wanders away from his assisted care facility to a bar where he tries to pick up a young Niki, who happens to be waiting for her boyfriend. In PJ Perrys The Enemy We Know, as a recruit prepares to join his nation's battle, he takes a hard look at his adversary, and finds himself targeted. A proper Victorian man accuses his brother of murder in Lyn Coffins The Prettiest Thing In The Room . IN Dave Tuckers Last Respects, high school buddies attempt to write the eulogy of theirOld friend Frank. When one man arrives at a womans apartment with an urgent warning for her, he finds another man asleep in her bed in Shes Not Here by LA Herberlein. J.D. talks Juliet into doing the right thing in J.D. Salinger Is My God by Caitlin Gilman. In Life Is A Bowl Of Oatmeal, a pantomime by PJ Perry, he traces the path of two lives from birth to death over a warm bowl of cereal. Ultramax 9000, by physical comedian Bill Robison, captures one mans unexpected confrontation with creative enlightenment.
