The Source Theater: If you missed the Source Festival last weekend, no worries, you have until July 3. The Festival continues with a run of 10-minute plays, full-run plays and artistic blind dates this weekend. This Friday, see a 10-minute play whose theme is “heroes and villains,” Saturday, “lost and found” and Sunday, “lovers and friends.” Click here for the full calendar.
- Lost & Found: Finding yourself or missing a long lost love. These plays ask, “Just what are you looking for?”
- Lovers & Friends: BFFs or star-crossed lovers? These plays take a closer look at the complexities we all face in building relationships.
- Heroes & Villains: The good, bad and ugly. These plays explore humanity’s best and worst players.
What is the Source Festival? “Driven by creativity, collaboration and invention, Source Festival artists from across the nation present 25 new works over three weeks. The relationships built here lay the path for the next generation of outstanding performing artists.” (Source)
Studio Theater: The History of Kisses opened June 15 at the Studio Theater. Written, directed and performed by David Cale, this play details the motions of a writer who “sequesters himself in an oceanfront motel to finish a collection of tales of seaside romance, only to find himself drawn into the romantic and sexual goings-on around him.” (Studio)
