"The Border Cafe, suspended between Texas and New Mexico, between now and then,where three characters walk the fine line between direction and misdirection. "
A one-act co-produced with Northwest Actor's studio, presented in conjunction with The Fiend's Friendly Council.
Our production of Action by Sam Shepard won a "Best of the Fest" Award back in 1993 and really helped us on our way! Set in a vaguely post-apocalyptic future, "Action" contrasts ordinary domestic routine with debilitating self-doubt, to surreal effect. Two couples, on whom the veneer of civilization is wering distinctly thin, get together for a turkey-dinner to be followed by some read-aloud entertainment - if they can remember where they left off in the book they're reading, that is.
Presented at the Northwest's Actor's Studio in November of 1992 with The Stonewater Rapture.
