MOXIE Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of Marisa Wegrzyn's dark, magical and wickedly funny comedy Hickorydickory
. Awarded the Wendy Wasserstein Prize for Drama in 2009, Hickorydickory
is a new turn for Wegrzyn, who wanted to explore fantasy without the lightness and whimsy usually associated with the genre. Her story has all the blood and guts of reality, with a magical twist. Hickorydickory
imagines that we are all born with a mortal clock that measures our days on earth. For most of us, this clock is hidden in our hearts where we never know of its existence. But for an unfortunate few, the clock is located in their brain, where they hear it ticking away, constantly. Dale is a member of that unlucky group and when she investigates the source of the ticking in her head, she'll discover the truth about her parents' hidden past and the clock repair shop she's called home. This dark comedy serves as a compelling examination of the time we have and the people we love enough to give it to.
