A shambolic, reclusive advice columnist known professionally as Dear Alien is under the gun. They have a deadline of yesterday for a collection of their columns; if they don’t turn it in they don’t get the advance, and they will be evicted from their apartment for non-payment of rent. In an attempt to create a passable manuscript, Dear Alien chooses seven unread letters at random and answers them, in a countdown to transcendent meaning or absolute despair.
Natural Shocks: A One-Woman Play in a Tornado by Lauren Gunderson
WHEN:Thursday, July 23, 2020, at 8pm
Based on Hamlet's "To be or not to be," NATURAL SHOCKS is a 65-minute, one-woman play that bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement. She overflows with quirks, stories, and a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America in your very lap. The play is part confessional, part stand up, and part reckoning.
In this solo show, a woman wakes up from a very strange dream and, realizing that her subconscious is telling her that she needs to make a big change, vows to quit her dead-end job that very same day. Soon, listening to her subconscious leads her on a series of misadventures, across the ocean, and into a whole new messy set of problems that may be more than she bargained for. Does her subconscious really have her best interests at heart?
