A man who can’t remember his name and carries his heart in his hand visits a friend who does unpaid janitorial work for fun, loves fizzy soda, and also can’t remember his name. The heart-in-hand man has a few dates with a woman who eats pizza. Then he goes to the zoo and inadvertently feeds his heart to a sea lion. This kind of overdetermined absurdism pervades Tympanic Theatre Company’s quadruple bill of short plays by Minnesota-based George McConnell. Reminiscent of Edward Albee’s early one-acts, the stiffly acted pieces purport to “examine the breakdown of communication in the most extraordinary of circumstances,” but the quirkiness itself doesn’t say much. —Justin Hayford
