The Free Radical and the Late Night Sketch Book
Part 2: The Wedding
Conceived, directed by Pandora Robertson
Created, performed by Amy Compton, Joseph Dunn, Lauren Fraley, Benjamin Gregg, and Sarah Greywitt
Free Radical and The Late Night Sketchbook follows a woman’s journey that begins with a game-changing crisis, the horror of which repels, intoxicates and consumes her. This woman’s journey forces her to come face to face with multiple philosophical questions exploring confession, identity and truth.
Robertson collaborates with an ensemble of actors using dialogue and movement to consider “What happens when the world passes you by?” Are we remembered by what we confess or by the fanciful narratives we create? What is the boundary between what we think is the truth and what we want the truth to be?
Like a Doberman on a Quarter Pounder
Written and Performed by Christine Howey
Directed by Scott Plate
The evening begins with poems, monologues and dialogues all touching on the human condition. Join Howey as she wonders what Beowulf had for breakfast, how it feels to be in forbidden love and the unexpected benefit of a bad day at McDonald's.
However, social commentary turns to the personal when Howey shares her journey from Richard to Christine. Beginning in 1950 as a boy wanting to be a girl and concluding in adulthood, the piece explores the pain, confusion and joy of seeking a gender that does not match one’s body.
