16 - Bits and Bobs: An Evening of Short Plays - Trompe L'Oeil - TRP
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Five actors perform five shows for five times the fun. Join us for an evening of short plays presented by TROMPE L'OEIL featuring a potpourri of comedy, drama and a dollop of surrealism.
I was honestly surprised that I hadn’t already put local theater company Trompe L’Oeil on any of my lists prior to this year. I’ve seen several of their previous shows and quite liked The Red Tureen and The Forger’s Apprentice.
They’re always doing new work, which I’m a fan of at the Fringe. This little sampler platter of short plays looks like a great way to introduce yourself to their work, if you’re not already familiar with it.
It also has an actor in the cast, Andrew Rosdail, who just did a scene from a play of mine in the recent T.E.A.S.E. new play showcase from Little Lifeboats earlier this July, so I’m inclined to be supportive for that reason as well.
Bonus points for a truly weird preview featuring a bunch of butter sculptures (one of whom had an amusing block head made out of foam).
Also, they have someone listed on their cast and crew page as an Intimacy Choreographer - so there’s that.
Here's some handy links to full Top 10, Top 11-20 and Returning Favorites lists.
