Two Story Animal - RHINOFEST 2010
Beau tells the tale of 30-year-old Boriley, odd-headed and prone to fits of drinking; 17-year-old Anna, prone to bursts of dancing; and Keith, sullen, sleepless and full of charismastic nastiness. Over the story's three months, acid is taken, baths explored, dancing is the health plan, and art falls out on the floor. Beau does his own acting in this troubling comic monologue, with a new special guest each weekend: Barrie Cole, Vicki Walden, Cecilie O'Reilly and David Isaacson.
