Lend Me a Theater brings two one-act plays to Hatbox Theatre
“The Whole Shebang” by Rich Orloff: This play asks the question, "What if the entire universe was just some nerd's science project?" In a classroom in a dimension far beyond ours, a student striving for a "Master of the Universe" degree gives an oral presentation on an unusual thesis -- the creation of the heavens and the earth. Two professors and a dean interrogate the student and his two visual aids, a "typical" man and woman.
“Bob’s Date” by John Shanahan: Bob is going on his first date in two years. All of his manly inner attributes—Logic, Confidence, Nerves, Libido, and Bull—are gearing up for the event. Then, a love-at-first-sight moment wakes long-sleeping Emotion and she threatens to throw the night into chaos. But if the men weren't ready to handle Emotion, then they're certainly not prepared to take on the Memory of the woman who broke Bob's heart.
