Second Stage Presents: Opposable Plays

525
Lindsay Schapiro ’14 invites you to come get fingered:

Fingers– what exactly are they?– how did they become that shape?– when did we as humans start using them in a sexual capacity?– why do they shake when you hold them out?– why do we crack them and they make a booming sound?– why do we put a circular object on one of them to show others that we are taken?

These are some questions explored through a collaborative theatrical event this week.

The ActorsFirst Project Presents: About Face

531892_10201135493007390_1749488232_n

From the extremely articulate Coz Deicke ’15:

The ActorsFirst Project is an experimental theater production in which the actors are chosen first, and then the script is written, inspired by the actors. Throughout the process, the script has been workshopped, rewritten, and transformed into the play About Face.

About Face centers around a four characters managing their turbulent relationships in a harsh Virginian winter.

The show is sponsored by Second Stage and is not ticketed. Read after the jump to see when performances are (spoiler later: there’s one tonight at 8pm and two tomorrow at 2pm and 8pm in the Downey House Lounge). BAM.
