Ionesco's "The Future is in Eggs" & Pirandello's "Sicilian Limes"
Joseph Hendel, Lauren Rayner, and ADEV Inc. present Eugene Ionesco's The Future is in Eggs and Luigi Pirandello's Sicilian Limes two forgotten modernist plays that are incredibly relevant in an age of economic scarcity, political pessimism, and cultural disaffection. Through strong improvisational-based acting and a cutting-edge use of technology, this production will unite the stylistically disparate one-acts into a coherent expression of hopeful defiance, one that entertains while simultaneously challenging the audience's perceptions about love, money, and personal fulfillment.

The company includes Adam Hocherman, Bradley Sumner, Brendan Sokler, Frankie Johnson, Grace Folsom, Joel Malazita, Lisa Hickman, Meaghan Sloane, and Skylar Saltz. The creative team includes sound by Nick Engel, sets by Charlie Gaidica, lights by Evan Gannon, costumes by Tara Weber; Stage Management by Samantha Gallardo and ASM/Make-Up by Michelle Gleber. Directed by Joseph Hendel and produced by Lauren Rayner.


Ionesco's THE FUTURE IS IN EGGS is a daring and hysterical example of The Theater of the Absurd. After entering into an arranged marriage, it is time for Jacques and Roberta to produce some offspring. With their family members eagerly looking on they begin to "hatch" their eggs.

In Pirandello's SICILIAN LIMES a dark, expressionistic farce, small-town musician Micuccio comes to the big city to marry the poor country girl he helped turn into a famous opera star. In contrast to the Ionesco play, which is played more traditionally to the audience, the Pirandello play offers so many possible interpretations that it will be presented using never-before-used interactive audio technology, affording the audience access to multiple perspectives and engaging them in the theater-making process.
