Everyday Inferno to Host Evening of One-Act Plays IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT..., 12/5-8
If on a Winter's Night..., Everyday Inferno's inaugural winter production of one-act plays directed by women, will play a week-long engagement from December 5th through December 8th, 2013 at the Access Theatre Gallery (380 Broadway, NYC 10013). The three plays featured in the evening are Jen Tries Vacation - written by G.D. Kimble (LaBute New Theatre Festival) and directed by Ana?s Koivisto (Artistic Director, Everyday Inferno), People Will Talk About You Sometimes - written by Sarah Matusek and directed by Taylor Reynolds, and The Policy - written by A.C. DeLashmutt and directed by Katherine Sommer (Producing Director, Everyday Inferno).
Elements of fantasy unite the three plays in an evening devoted to bare-bones theatrical magic. In G.D. Kimble's Jen Tries Vacation, a yuppie couple has a magical encounter that tests their patience, their "liberal" values, and ultimately their sanity. Have they wandered to the wrong side of the universe, or just the wrong side of the tracks? In A.C. DeLashmutt's The Policy, Jessie receives two odd and unexpected visitors with a very unusual product to sell. With her future psychic health on the line, she is forced to consider the inevitable after-effects of weight gain, friendship-ending fights, and circus-seal-training reality show contests. Sarah Matusek's People Will Talk About You Sometimes, inspired by Sarah Kane's 4:48 Psychosis, follows a loose network of inter-connected strangers as they come together in a show of support after a mutual friend's unexpected attempt at suicide. Unbound by limitations of time or space, the play explores the emotional terrain of illness, acceptance, and recovery.
