Teaming up with playwright Tom Block and Sanctuary’s director-at-large Katrin Hilbe, we are proud to present a night of two one acts.
Danny and the Therapist shows a man in therapy who loses control of his session. First, the therapist changes place with him and forces Danny to listen; then Danny’s wife enters and takes over the scene. She divulges a story of infidelity. Danny pulls a gun, trying to regain control of his time, but the gun does not work.
Comic Book looks at a space of last resort, a room where the last survivors of some imagined Armageddon have been called. Sterling weaves a compelling tale about the end of time and the beginning of myth. Wallace the poet and Lethe the mother are there. A homeless man wanders into the scene. Two orderlies appear and seem to indicate that they are in control. The others tie them up. The homeless man becomes a doctor. It might just be a mental hospital.
