10-4: The Truck Stop Plays
Short Play Showcase 10-4 Explores Life, Loneliness & Junk Food at a Truck Stop
Chemically Imbalanced Comedy Theater is taking the lowly truck stop -- its oddball characters, its eerie isolation, its endless junk food aisles -- and transforming it into a point of inspiration for an evening of original works. 10-4: The Truck Stop Plays
showcases four short plays written by four male playwrights from the Ohio University MFA Playwriting program, each directed by an up-and-coming female director from Chicago. From a young woman who looks to a stranger for a way out of her disastrous marriage (Burger King
) to a story of three siblings struggling to find their way home (Detour
), each play offers a unique take on life, loneliness and angst as characters arrive at unique travel-oasis crossroads in their lives.
