The Brown Box Theatre Project returns to the Eastern Shore, with performances slated for this weekend in Ocean City, MD. The latest performance from our Boston-based friends is titled, Boxer Shorts, and includes four short plays.
You probably recognize Brown Box from their annual Free Shakespeare at the Beach performances that are held in several towns across Delmarva at the end of each summer. The theatre group has also put on several productions at the Ocean City Center for the Arts. Boxer Shorts will also be performed at the Ocean City Center for the Arts (located on 94th Street) with four shows: Saturday, May 9 through Monday, May 11 at 7:30 pm & Sunday, May 10 at 2pm.
“Boxer Shorts is an evening of enchanting and interrogative short plays that explore the space between sleeping and waking, thinking and knowing, living and dying,” said Marketing & Literary Director Talia Curtin. The production includes four short plays:
Play, by Samuel Beckett – An absurdly thrilling expose of three adulterous lovers by the legendary Irish playwright.
Talk to Me like the Rain and Let Me Listen, by Tennessee Williams – A poetic exploration of the reality of desperation, fantasy, and delusion between two isolated lovers by one of America’s most beloved playwrights.
The New World Order, by Harold Pinter – An examination of the practice and implications of torture in a gripping dark comedy by the influential English playwright.
Personal Belongings, by Diana Raznovich – This comedic one woman show by revolutionary Argentinian playwright, Raznovich, is a searing portrait of a self-proclaimed diva rummaging through a sea of unclaimed baggage.
