The Strange: Strangers Clash and Connect in Dark, Funny Drama
$10.00 - $16.00
COMP - $9.00*
If you are familiar with playwright Jenny Magnus, The Strange doesn't seem so strange at all. Both brainy and brave, Magnus tackles big questions about human nature with gusto and a good deal of grit. In The Strange, two women -- one grown, the other a girl -- meet late at night on three separate occasions. Convened under very unpleasant circumstances, their meetings provoke a cascade of questions: Is hope (or despair) infectious? Can one person ever really influence another, or is "listening" always a form of playacting? Flashes of startling insight illuminate this darkly funny play which first appeared as a part of Curious Theatre Branch's 2014 Magnus in Play Festival. The Ruckus now re-stages this remarkable compact work in association with the Athenaeum Theatre.
