This Random World by Steven Dietz
Directed by Beth Harper

West Coast Premier
We want to believe that serendipity brings us together, that luck is available to all, and that randomness is just a myth, but, is it? Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. Do we see what is right in front of us? Are we capable of that? From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own. A hit at the 2016 Humana Festival.

Previews April 5-7, runs April 7-23
