Painting Molly: Two One-Act Plays

8/8-8/31: Fri-Sat 8 PM, Sun 7 PM

Found Objects Theatre Group’s pairing of two one-acts, Mark Chrisler’s The Art of Painting and Chris Bower’s Notes to Molly, is a confusing one, though both plays address irreparable relationships and impossible expectations. The Art of Painting, presented as an art history lecture on Vermeer and his infamous forger, is more exciting and intellectually stimulating than anything I remember from college. Playing the instructor, Chrisler builds a sense of unreliability and mystery, and the twists that follow are a refreshing reminder of the vivid worlds a one-man show can create onstage. Notes to Molly, a portrait of an alcoholic couple contemplating the failures of their relationship, is thoughtful, well staged, and thoroughly depressing, but lacks the genuine and deeply personal aspects of Painting. —Marissa Oberlander $15
