WOMEN AND WALLACE
Cast: 1 man, 8 women: 9 total
Comprised of a series of brisk, kaleidoscopic scenes, the play begins as Wallace, now a handsome young man of eighteen, hurls a ripe tomato at a pretty young woman dressed all in white while declaiming "I love you." We then move back in time to when Wallace, six years of age, is sent off to school by his mother—who then proceeds to slit her own throat. Wallace finds her body, a shock which continues to haunt his relationships with the other women who come into his life as he grows up, including his crusty, wise grandmother; the girl who swipes his peanut butter and banana sandwich at school and later browbeats him into his first kiss; the psychiatrist who tries to help him exorcise his troubling memories; and the knowing senior who provides his sexual initiation while he is a college freshman. All of the characters, in the end, contribute to the mosaic which captures with such eloquence and wit all the fears and joys and uncertainties which mark Wallace's progress towards manhood.
Sides will be available shortly. Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move in.
