In These Uncertain Times is a digitally-devised performance piece, made specifically for its medium. It is a new dramaturgy defined by dystopia, and it is a love letter to the art of theatre. Stemming from a group of artists wondering if COVID-19 is the death of theatre as we know it, In These Uncertain Times is a tragicomic, Chekhovian Zoom performance. From drinking competitions, sad Chekhov monologues, and corona-virus meme collages, In These Uncertain Times’ focal point is the impossibility of theatre as we’ve known it, and forges a new path in the artform, while grieving for the past.

A quick recap on some of the shows this year we had a chance to see.

https://www.octheatreguild.org/relief-fund


I Decided I’m Fine: A Roach Play considers hoarding, an American phenomenon which is often stigmatized but rarely discussed. After the sudden death of the their infant child, Ellen and Stephen find themselves faced with the difficult task of moving on from the objects that remind them of the incident. For Ellen, this proves to be too overwhelming of a task, leading to years of compulsive accumulation. Juxtaposed with the play’s realism is a second layer of the play which utilizes clowning, comedy, and a cockroach musical to steer the audience through the many different ways hoarding is perceived and portrayed in society.

GREAT SHOW!

What if you awoke to find yourself married to someone you didn’t know?  With a daughter you’ve never met?  And what if you spent each day re-learning things about your past that only proved you never really knew what your life was like?  From Tony/Pulitzer-nominated playwright Lee Blessing, comes the story of three people searching for lifelong answers to fundamental questions about our purpose, our past and our future.  And all the answers may be found in A Body of Water. Taken from the website.

Great Show!

Taken from the press release: 

“WE’RE GONNA DIE” features a single Singer, accompanied by a full rock bad, as she shares stories about death, grief and loneliness from her life. These stories range from the mundane to the tragic, from discovering her first white hair to her father’s sudden and tragic death from lung cancer as he waited for an experimental treatment. Lee’s songs and stories demystify grief, creating a community space that provides the solace that we need to get through those difficult moments.

Neil Simon’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning coming-of-age memory play, set in Yonkers in 1942, is a tale of family dysfunction at its best. Arty and Jay, two teenage brothers are forced to live with their mentally-challenged aunt and stern, bitter grandmother while their ne’er-do-well father takes to the road as a traveling salesman to pay off his debts to a loan shark. Taken from the website. 

GREAT SHOW!

This hysterical comedy follows Jack Chesney who loves Kitty Verdun and Charley who loves Miss Amy Spettigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley’s wealthy aunt from Brazil, “where the nuts come from.” Canceling her visit at the last minute, the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? The problem is solved by drafting their pal into impersonating “Charley’s Aunt”. This beautiful and hysterical production is set in the 1920s, adding a fun modern take to this timeless show! Taken from the website.
