Donna Oblongata: All 100 Fires
July 24, 2019 8:00 pm| $10 – $15
Somewhere in a forest nearby, a lone guerrilla commander will ask you to prove yourself during a game of Pass the Sponge. If you fail at that, maybe you can help grind the sulfur.
Meanwhile, the Giant Ibis was thought to be extinct in Cambodia, though footage from a few years ago reveals that some still exist. That part of the story is true. Basically. But can you really believe a man who was brought up in the taxidermy trade? Join our hero, who actually is maybe a traitor, for the war we were born to fight.
Donna Oblongata returns after taking three years off from touring with a new solo show, All 100 Fires. The show stars a guerrilla commander and you, the new recruits. Birds flutter in and out, though mostly they are dead.
It’s a funny play if you like being told that your best isn’t good enough. It’s a sad play if you were hoping for something more optimistic. It’s an educational play if you want to learn how to make explosives.
