Comprised of many local players, these works offer a wild and wondrous night of NEW and BOLD theatre. A world premiere like none other, The Awful Real Thing and The Velociraptor are sure to entertain. The show contains nudity, violence and adult language. For mature audiences only.
The Awful Real Thing (The ART): In a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest, failed writer, Matt Tellerman celebrates his birthday alone, cutting himself off from all outside communication but when best friend, Archie, arrives bearing "a present", all hell breaks loose. The ART exposes the dark impulses of human nature by tempting a lonely writer to indulge his savage wants and commit something truly awful in order prove his self worth. With guns, knives and typewriters at the ready, you alone are held accountable for your own survival. A vulgar and violent farce about friendship and art.
The Velociraptor (The V.) is the newest work from award winning playwright, René Vohzé. Critics are raving, "if you thought life had meaning, you need to see this play, because it doesn't!" Pierre St. Ives, former dance instructor at Julliard, says, "an incendiary commentary on corporate voyeurisma critical critique on critics." Glenn Hergenhahn, Artistic Director of the iDiOM Theater, declares the piece, "Minimalist trashI'm not sure what I was thinkingGod, help me." Prepare to be delighted, disgusted and utterly transformed as a human being!
