10-4: The Truck Stop Plays | CIC Theater | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 30 2014
Price: $10
None of the four plays that make up this bill feels finished. Each one feels rough, ill-formed, or incomplete in its own way. That is to be expected. These are one acts written by students at Ohio University's MFA program, and each writer has wisely allowed himself (all the writers are male; the directors are female) the creative freedom to take risks and "fail forward." This may be good for the writers in the long term. But the result is an evening of half-baked work, enlivened by moments of deep-dish Chicago-style acting. SarahJayne Ashenhurst and Elizabeth Birnkrant are particularly intense as an unlikely contract killer and her narcissistic client in Ryan Patrick Dolan's Burger King. —Jack Helbig
