DIY play about Antarctic exploration, robots and bridge building

It’s tonight at Kitsch Gallery. Read all about it:

Once there was a time when people knew the difference between sacrifice and compromise. Which is to say, they knew the difference between a walrus and a robot. Which is to say, they knew the difference between a hole in the ice… and the ice itself. They knew each of the 18 hand movements prescribed by Time Motion Study, and they knew how to use them in a way that was restful. This play is a television mini-series about that remarkable period of time.

As always, The Missoula Oblongata is asking the big questions here: Can inefficiency be cured? If a robot is smarmy, is it only a reflection of your own smarminess? What exactly does it take to get oneself on a postage stamp?

This April, The Missoula Oblongata will be touring their new play, The Daughter of the Father of Time Motion Study around the country. It’s the company’s sixth touring production–this one half the size of their usual main-stage fare, but with all of the moving parts, twisty dialog, and duct-taped together lighting that the company has become known for. And all of it is created, performed, and operated from the stage (that is, a 6′ x 6′ x ’6 box) by the three full-time members of the company: Madeline ffitch, Sarah Lowry, and Donna Sellinger.

RSVP and invite your friends here.
