Restraints and Passages
Two Unique Performances ~ One Soulful Evening of Theatre
WHEN: October 14-16 at 8 PM, October 17 at 3 PM
TICKETS:
General admission $20; Seniors/Artists $15; Students $10

This double-bill offers a rare opportunity to see three international theatre artists in a richly imaginative evening of theater. Jola Cynkutis of Poland, Khalid Tyabji of India and Diane Edgecomb of Boston will present two one-act pieces strongly influenced by Zbigniew Cynkutis, one of the principal members of Grotowski’s Teatr Laboratorium of Poland. The Teatr Laboratorium created a revolution in theatre by eschewing narrative text and scenic elements in favor of startling physical and vocal imagery rooted in the actor’s psyche. Through evocative images, movement, text and songs Restraints and Passages enchant and challenge audiences while exploring universal themes.

Chick with a Trick, a performance with puppets for children and family audiences, tells a story about a Hen who lays a bonbon instead of an egg. In despair, Hen seeks advice and support from her friends the Duck, the Doctor and the King, but they are too obsessed by their own troubles to help. In the end, inspired by the beautiful sunny day and with help from the children, Hen learns a valuable lesson.

A new musical based on Bill Griffith’s popular comic strip, with music and lyrics by Lorraine Whittlesey. The beloved, if slightly skewed comic strip by Bill Griffith, gets the musical treatment when composer Lorraine Whittlesey follows Zippy as he visits Baltimore and he and Griffy take a road trip to his high school reunion in nearby Dingburg. Fun abounds with songs like “Pinhead Love,” “The Condiments” and “Type ‘Z’ Personality.” A world premier workshop production.
