TPTBT (The Place to Be Tonight): Wednesday, May 22

Share on Google+

Who: Tesseract Theatre Company
What: You Won't See Me
Where: The Regional Arts Commission, 6128 Delmar
When: Tonight through Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 4 PM
Why: "Mal has had an adventurous life, witnessing first hand the rise of the greatest band in rock n’ roll history. What should have been a life of happiness and fulfillment has turned into one of loneliness and abandonment. Now John, a young writer, has come to help Mal write his memoir, but Mal’s reluctancy to bring up old memories makes things get a bit out of hand. But isn’t that the way everything turns out when The Beatles are involved?" The play is by company playwright in residence Caitlin McCommis. Tesseract's mission is "to emphasize the diversity and significance of multiracial casting in the regional theatre spectrum of the Midwest through the art of ensemble performance and the ability to mix new writings from a company of local playwrights with existing works from the national canon." That's admirable, and local playwrights need all the encouragement they can get.
