Dear Mr. Barerra,
What do you look like?
(Second Stage presents “Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin’ So Sad” by Arthur Kopit, this weekend at Beckham Hall in Fayerweather. Come see the ridiculous and unsettling story of family, love, death, and a growing fear of the outside world.)
P.S. Today I fed rubber bands to my mother’s plants and she said I was so good at it that I could be a professional. A professional, of…of, um, rubber ba…hm.
(Combining dark comedy with absurdism, “Oh Dad, Poor Dad…” parodies the extremes of societal distrust and miscommunication. Leave the children at home…this play gets a little sexually explicit.)
P.P.S. Do you like airplanes? I like airplanes more than most things.
(Directed by Jo Firestone. Come see it Thursday at 8pm, Friday at 8pm, Friday at 11pm, or Saturday at 8pm. Free admission.)
P.P.P.S. My name is Jonathan.
To recap, showtimes are:
- Thursday, Dec. 6 @ 8:00 PM
- Friday, Dec. 7 @ 8:00 PM
- Friday, Dec. 7 @ 11:00 PM
- Saturday, Dec. 8 @ 8:00 PM
