Theatre for Thought

April 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

$10 – $25
Solo performers

Our newly minted “Theatre for Thought” series will present internationally-acclaimed solo performers, who engage serious subjects with humor, intelligence and insight.

Theatre can do so much. It can entertain, transport, or challenge – that’s Theatre for Thought – and it’s coming to our stage.

FORGET ME NOT (ROB GEE)
Jim’s wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He’s determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has dementia. It’s a case worthy of the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do.

Written and performed by comic, poet and psychiatric nurse Rob Gee, Forget Me Not recently completed a sold out run across the US and Canada.

“Remarkable… a comedy, meditation on human dignity and at its heart, a love story… with his mix of humor and heart, Gee strikes storytelling gold.”
— Orlando Sentinel

Please Note: This performance may contain mature content.

EXPIRATION DATE (CANDY SIMMONS)
Lucille is a young woman struggling through the realities of a terminal diagnosis. EXPIRATION DATE, a one-woman play created and performed by frequent Fringe Festival® performer Candy Simmons, investigates the attitudes and fears that come with death and dying in America.

Lucille’s journey offers an unsentimental, raw, irreverent, and darkly-comedic peek into one woman’s journey into the great unknown.

“…a wry, moving, poignant and funny experience. For a gifted actor such as Simmons, this is a showcase of strength and talent.”
— Star Tribune
