This Random World: The Myth of Serendipity
April 17- May 16, 2020
By Steven Dietz, Dir. Krista Schafer Ewbank
We want to believe that serendipity brings us together, but is that just a myth?
Mining the comedy of missed connections, THIS RANDOM WORLD asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.
“…affecting…The characters are drawn with empathy and humor, and the cascading series of coincidences neatly illustrates the idea that, as the title suggests, we are all hostages to chance.” —The New York Times. “…succeeds on every level…It’s the sort of play you walk away from having fallen completely in love with every person on the stage…The play is also fast and funny, delivering constant comedy that comes from the characters and their foibles, including numerous instances of the laughter that comes from a place of painful self recognition.” —Arts-Louisville.com.
