Theatre of NOTE Presents COPY, Opening 5/4
Theatre of NOTE continues its season of world premieres with COPY, written by Padraic Duffy and directed by David LM McIntyre. COPY was work-shopped in NOTEworthy, Theatre of NOTE's ongoing staged reading and play development series. COPY will preview Friday April 27 and Saturday April 28, and will open on Friday May 4 at 8pm and run through Saturday June 2 at Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N. Cahuenga Blvd. (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood.
COPY is a darkly absurd office comedy (with music!) that explores memory, loss, obsession, daguerreotypes, deceitful lemurs and the undissectable sound of love. When mild-mannered Theo loses his beloved cat, he wanders in to an office where the employees have forgotten what exactly their company does.
Theo begins a laughing club in the office bathroom as therapy. Soon a rival crying club is formed in the opposite bathroom, and a deadly power struggle ensues as everyone in the office tries to find their way in life and love while dealing with loss.
