Please join us as we enter Askew, Askance, A Squirrel, the off-kilter, sometimes silly and almost always absurd world of Lisa Konoplisky. Lisa's world is populated with sentient washing machines, a corn and rapture obsessed Nebraskan and a not so Cavalier, King Charles Spaniel, in these two one-act scripts.
Start your spring off right with laughter and a chance to meet the author. Oh, and thinking of spring thoughts and (desperately trying to create a segue) early birds, you can save $5 on tickets if you purchase via eventbrite before Friday March 10th. Follow the links below.
Did we mention this continues Ixion's season of all new works? We can't wait to bring Lisa's scripts to the stage for the first time.
Directed by Sadonna CroffBillie Lou Riddle is worried about Toby, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that looks remarkably like a guy made to look like a dog. She wants to make sure there is someone to take care of him after she is gone. Emily Marks assumes that Billie's planning a trip, but quickly learns that Billie is planning a longer departure "as foretold". Emily is a perfect candidate to care for the pooch, because she and he won't be going anywhere after the rapture.
Directed by Nicole Clyne
Jill is uncertain about her new gift, the SAL-9000. She isn't sure she can trust a sentient washer/dryer all purpose service machine. But Jill has been hurt and in spite of the SAL-9000 lacking a delicate cycle, finds herself becoming emotionally attached.
