Horn Rim Productions Presents THOM PAIN and LADY GREY by Will Eno This Weekend
The Mix Studio Theater is set to present Horn Rim Productions' staging of two new plays by Will Eno: Thom Pain (based on nothing), with Peter Knox as Thom Pain, and Lady Grey (in ever lower light), with Kristin Beckett as Lady Grey. Both plays are directed by Ron Miller.
Lady Grey (in ever lower light) is playing tonight, May 9 at 7:00 pm, Sat., May 10 at 7:00 pm, Sun., May 11 at 7:00 pm, admission $10.00. Lady Grey tantalizes, castigates, and flirts with the audience in a monologue on life's adventure, from a young girl's "show and tell" experiences to her love life with "the man in the blue shirt". Melancholic and joyful in turns, the play builds to a crescendo and leaves you to ponder what just transpired. You know one thing for certain: audience is essential.
Thom Pain (based on nothing) is playing Fri., May 9 at 9:00 pm, Sat., May 10 at 9:00 pm, Sun., May 11 at 4:00 pm, admission $10.00. He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life-in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row.
Tickets available at the door 1 hour prior to show time or online at brownpapertickets.com.
