This year I’ll be returning to the short works festival of the Arc Theatre, arciTEXT! This year, arciTEXT explores the theme of “The Prodigal Daughter,” and expands to three nights and 15 shows, with a selection of 10 pieces presented each night.
I’ll be playing “Dad” in The Venutian by Sarah Hecht & Diego Bàez and directed by Chris Thoren. Set in a dystopian future where the earth is a ravaged husk covered in nightmare weather and humanity has colonized the other planets of the solar system, a mother and a daughter clash over their life choices while Dad tries to start the grill. Emily Green plays my wife, and, hilariously, Caitlin Cavannaugh plays my daughter in an arciTEXT play for the 2nd year in a row!
The Venutian will play on Monday, April 11th and Tuesday, April 12th – doors open at 6:30pm, show at 7:30pm – at the Frontier at 1106 Thorndale (right off the Thorndale Red Line stop). Admission is $15 (CASH ONLY) and includes a complimentary beverage!
