    Almost Blue by Keith Reddin

    A Senior Directing Thesis by Harris Allgeier

    October 25 & October 26, 2013
    8 p.m. • Tawes Theatre, Gibson Center for the Arts

    Almost Blue is a stage noir set in a seedy rooming house. A man just out of prison trying to stay straight, a strange loner down the hall who writes pornographic greeting cards, a violent ex-con who wants to settle old scores. And of course, the beautiful woman in trouble, who messes with everybody’s head. Written in a series of brutal, funny encounters, Almost Blue is a journey into the dark night, full of plot twists and sultry exchanges.

    Arcadia takes us back and forth between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, ranging over the nature of truth and time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life. Focusing on the mysteries—romantic, scientific, literary—that engage the minds and hearts of characters whose passions and lives intersect across scientific planes and centuries, it is “Stoppard’s richest, most ravishing comedy to date, a play of wit, intellect, language, brio and … emotion. Exhilarating.” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).

    Gary’s drug of choice is an addiction to lucid dreaming. Through careful study he has taught himself to control his dreams, whether this means living out erotic fantasies or talking philosophy with God and Satan.

    Washington College Drama Department opens the first-ever collegiate performance of Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park, directed by Professor Dale Daigle.
      
    Clybourne Park
     is a provocative comedy about race, class, and real estate. Act One opens in 1959, when a black family moves into a predominantly white Chicago neighborhood.  In Act Two, the roles are reversed: in the same house, 50 years later, a black neighborhood fights gentrification. The result is what New York Times critic Ben Brantley described as a “sharp-witted, sharp-toothed comedy of American uneasiness.”

    Claire has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. This morning, like all mornings, she wakes up a blank slate. Her chipper husband comes in with a cup of coffee, explains her condition, hands her a book filled with all sorts of essential information, and he disappears into the shower. A limping, lisping, half-blind, half-deaf man in a ski mask, pops out from under her bed and claims to be her brother, there to save her. Claire’s info book is quickly discarded, and she’s hustled off to the country-house of her mother, a recent stroke victim whose speech has been reduced to utter gibberish. Claire’s journey gets even more complicated when a dimwitted thug with a foul-mouthed hand puppet pops up at a window, and her driven husband and perpetually stoned son show up with a claustrophobic lady-cop that they’ve kidnapped. Every twist and turn in this funhouse plot bring Claire closer to revealing her past life and everything she thought she’d forgotten. It’s one harrowing and hilarious turn after another on this roller coaster ride through the day of an amnesiac trying to decipher her fractured life. This poignant and brutal new comedy traces one woman’s attempt to regain her memory while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters.
