When a woman welcomes an uninvited guest to Thanksgiving dinner, an entire family is challenged and changed in Sovereign Body, an ambitious new drama from playwright Emilie Beck and the Road Theatre Company. Ranging in style from dream play to naturalism, Sovereign Body is a haunting look at a family's struggle to heal in the face of daunting adversity. Scott Alan Smith (That Good Night, Lady) directs this latest work from the celebrated writer of Number of People (which starred Ed Asner in the recent Pasadena Playhouse production) and Habeas Corpus.

Well produced. The set, the costumes, the multi media interactions, the talented cast,and the smooth direction make this show. The problem was the script itself. The writers seemed too attached to the book, making it for a loooong night. The first act was almost entirely expository. Although the film projections on the upstage wall were clever perfection, they did not forward the story. They only made it longer. Kudos to the actors and director for their efforts and commitment. The writers, however, may want to rethink the important differences between film, prose and theatre.

"Dirk" is one of the most inventive productions I have seen. It is funny and thought provoking with a terrific cast of excellent actors. I have not seen such good acting in a long time. This could become a cult hit and is not to be missed.
Quotes & Highlights
“Hilarious… Douglas Adams’ immensely convoluted novel rendered delightfully stageworthy…an engrossing, often hilarious journey through the natural and supernatural realms!”_ —Daily Variety_
Starring Scot Burklin, Dennis Gersten, Carl J. Johnson, Ambre Low, Tripp Pickell, Daniel R. Vasquez, James K. Ward, and Heather Williams.
A 200-year old Greek pot. An ordinary modern salt cellar lodged inside. This is impossible (or at least inexplicable)! From the mind of Douglas Adams, who brought you The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, comes Dirk, a ghost/horror/detective/time-travel/romantic comedy/epic that begins with a seemingly innocent conjuring trick and ends with the most devastating secret of humankind!
