Evolution Theatre Presents Two Area Premieres by Rich Orloff, TROPICAL HEAT and SKIN DEEP, Now thru 7/19

Again this year, Evolution Theatre Company, in celebration of Columbus PRIDE 2014, will present two plays in tandem, both by New York playwright Rich Orloff, a native of Chicago, and an Oberlin College alumnus.

Tropical Heat
Showtimes: 8 p.m. TONIGHT and Friday July 10 - 11, 6 p.m. Saturday July 12, 2 p.m. Sunday July 13 and 8:30 p.m. Saturday July 19
Tropical Heat is an outrageous, over-the-top comedy where passionate fury succumbs to furious passion. Set in a 1920s tropical hotel, Tropical Heat pits a proselytizing pastor against a passionate party girl with a past. When a fire-and-brimstone minister clashes with a tropical temptress, he doesn't have a prayer! Other characters include the acerbic hotel owner, a bum, and a tormented young painter who hasn't painted anything yet because he's still learning how to be tormented.

Skin Deep
Showtimes: 8:30 p.m. Saturday July 12, 5 p.m. Sunday July 13, 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday July 17 - 18 and 6 p.m. Saturday July 19
Skin Deep is a light comedy with depth, a sex comedy with more than sex on its mind. When a couple from Ohio inherits a clothing-optional resort in Key West, they discover parts of themselves never before exposed! The staff includes a gay front desk clerk who's an aspiring drag queen and a lesbian handyman who moonlights as a dominatrix. And then there's the potential buyer of the hotel, a businessman who likes giving women the business. Overwhelmed by the lifestyles of the resort's staff and guests, the couple is forced to face questions of what they believe and who they really are.

Single play tickets are $15. Special: both plays package is $25. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.evolutiontheatre.org or by calling the 24/7 TicketHotline at 800- 838-3006. Performances are at the Columbus Performing Arts Center, 549 Franklin Ave., Columbus, OH 43215 in the Van Fleet Theatre.
