Dramatic theatre doesn’t have much relevance anymore. Or so acclaimed playwright Darren O’Donnell tells us. The dynamics of gently coaxed real-world social interaction, he says, are far more compelling than any play he could produce.
Darren’s playscripts White Mice, Who Shot Jacques Lacan?, Radio Rooster Says That’s Bad and Over will challenge your politics, your ontology and everything you hold to be safe, stable and sacrosanct, inoculating you against your self.
Dr. Thoughtless Actions, a young geneticist, awakes one morning to find a cardboard box secured to his head. Unable to wrench it off, he attempts to end his life, but inadvertently and unknowingly clones himself. The Dr. and his clone sing. A lot.
