    Heard (But Not Scene)

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Both plays in the evening, as a result of their innovative concepts and storytelling devices, redefine what a play can be, while providing a unique opportunity for a director to play with new forms. Despite no dialogue, scenes, and, for the most part, movement these plays remain kinetic through the worlds the playwright has created, the language and the demands on the actors. The two plays are as follows: * Match: Seemingly glued to their seats, five characters tell five separate stories at the same time without ever interacting with each other. Initially, they simply appear to be everyday people telling their personal stories, but then discover how their lives unexpectedly intersect; the events that unfold force them to see how randomness and chance affect even the most mundane aspects of their lives. * Beep: A man returns from a business trip to find his answering machine full of messages. Never uttering a word himself, but viscerally reacting to the numerous messages people left him, he must listen to how the lives of the people around him are affected by what they say (and don't say) to one another after it has already happened.
