The RV Plays – New Orleans Fringe Festival 2013
“America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.” -Tennessee Williams
An intimate evening of theatre inside a recreational vehicle for limited audiences, Lightning Rod Special presented three pieces inside of the very same RV they used to make their way from their Philadelphia home to the city of New Orleans.
Alice Yorke uses the smallest stage to tell the largest of stories. Creating a whole world for the audience in the palm of her hand, À Table explores the limits of what we need to understand in order to comprehend.
Katie Gould tells an adult story from a kid’s perspective. Left alone in her home, little Sarah has planned her first sleepover without her parents’ supervision, and seven lucky audience members get the chance to join in all the fun.
Mason Rosenthal presents a multi-sensory meditation on the nature of nothingness, performed for an extraordinary audience in an ordinary vehicle. Expect refreshments, waterfowl, foot massage, and mind-melting voice over. This piece was a co-production with The Medium Theatre Company.
