Sacred Fools' RYAN IS LOST Continues Through 5/14
Sacred Fools Theater presents the return of the Fringe hit RYAN IS LOST, by Nathan Wellman and directed by Michael Nankin.
Avis and Frank have lost their nephew, Ryan, in the middle of a crowded mall. They wait at the pre-agreed-upon meeting spot for him to show up, assuring themselves that he's fine. But the two quickly forget all about Ryan as they tear into each other's imperfections, from Frank's divorce to Avis's obsession with being as perfect as Ryan's mother, Leah. The longer they wait, the more despair starts to set in, but still they take no action. Leah starts to call Avis's cell phone to check up on them, but Avis never answers. They become terrified not for Ryan's safety, but of the almost assured destruction of their goodness. Even after the mall has closed down for the night, they continue to wait cower behind old bickering until things escalate to desperate violence and greater tragedy. It becomes increasingly clear that they will never find Ryan because they are just as lost as he is.
