Event

DURANG/DURANG at Common Ground Theatre, Durham
Bare Theatre presents
DURANG/DURANG
by Christopher Durang
directed by Olivia Griego

July 26 - 29, Common Ground Theatre
4815-B Hillsborough Rd., Durham
Th. 7/26, Fri. 7/27, Sat. 7/28 at 8:00p; Sun. 7/29 at 2:00p

DURANG/DURANG is a collection of six short comedies by Obie Award-winning playrwright Christopher Durang.  It is divided into two parts: "Theatre" and "Everything Else."  

The first half contains "Mrs. Sorken," an introduction to theatre by a woman who has forgotten her notes; "Stye of the Eye," a psychotic mashup of Sam Shepard's A LIE OF THE MIND, AGNES OF GOD, and GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS; and "For Whom The Southern Belle Tolls," which twists THE GLASS MENAGERIE into a tale of gender-switched confusion.

The second half turns to stories of melodrama, unfortunate houseguests and terrible waiters.  "Nina in the Morning," is an Edward Gorey-esque portrait of a woman with too many facelifts and taboo relationships with her children.  "Wanda's Visit" is the story of a high-school flame who has flamed-out...and won't leave.  "Business Lunch at the Russian Tea Room" concludes with a satirical look at the gaping divide between writers and agents.

This show contains adult humor, language and themes, and is not recommended for small children.
