Jack Arts, Inc. presents a dramatic two-hander; a play about two people marching relentlessly towards the future.
Tom’s mother and father made love, Tom was born, Tom grew up, Tom entered this restaurant, Tom is on a date with Eliza. Eliza’s mother and father made love, Eliza was born, Eliza grew up, Eliza entered this restaurant, Eliza is on a date with Tom. The two characters use rapid-fire language to chronicle their entire relationship, mercilessly withholding nothing. A battle of wills that centers on obsessions with bathing and book-burning, propelling the audience from an ordinary first date toward the end of civilization.
See it if what a stunning, radical, terrifying, magnetic, civic, delightful, spiky hug of a play. Necessary and utterly thrilling.
Don't see it if you should really just see it.
