Hell Is...

Listening to LA Theatreworks's broadcast of Oscar Wilde's The Importance Of Being Earnest on loop... over and over and over again.

Nothing worse than listening to a bunch of smarmy British folk sitting around a drawing room being boring.

Eisegesis (n): is the process of misinterpreting a text in such a way that it introduces one's own ideas, reading into the text.

A man wakes up in a dark cell with no memory of how he got there or why he's being imprisoned. As two strangers relentlessly interrogate him, he is forced to memories that begin to explain what he may have done. How can mere thought be harmful?

I would like to formally invite all you Hootenanny-ers out there to my first Los Angeles play since the inception of this blog. :-) Eisegesis is part of The Blank Theatre Company's hugely successful 19th Annual Young Playwrights Festival. Eisegesis, like all plays in the YPF, was penned by a playwright under the age of 20- but it asks some surprisingly intriguing questions and touches on some very deep subject matter. What drew me to this play was the amount of suspense that layers this story...and the revelation at the end that sometimes searching for answers is just as dangerous as finding the answers.

We run from
Thursday, June 9- Sunday June 12.
All performances are at 8 pm, except for Sunday the 12th- which is at 2pm.
The Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

I'd love to see my beloved Hootenanny'ers there, ya'll!
