This weekend we’re going back in time!
2019 is a whole new year, and I’m already sick of it! Everything was better in the past, and I’m getting real tired of the way time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’ into the future. So let’s kick off the weekend with a visit to the good ol’ 19th Century!

As previously established, all past time periods are better than the present, whether that means the 1970s, the fifth century A.D., or a blend of the two!

The show, part of the Exponential Festival of experimental plays, runs again Sunday at 3 pm.
