Steve Martin’s WASP and the ZIGZAG WOMAN presented by Ultra Popcorn Theatre Co.
Thursday October 11, 2018 07:00 PM EDT
From the venue:Ultra Popcorn Theatre Company presents two one act plays by Steve Martin: WASP and The Zig Zag Woman. Directed by Gayle Rej and Barb Hays. Pushed to amazing lengths to relive profound loneliness, the waitress in The Zig Zag Woman magically separates herself into three parts to facilitate her quest for a man. In the fractured landscape of 50s suburbia, WASP’s prototypical, but perverse nuclear family exists in a dark limbo of expectation and routine.. Steve Martin has been renowned for 50 years as a comedian, actor, musician, writer, and playwright. Martin began publishing plays in the late 1990s and are an interesting examination of the identity politics of the 90s and the author’s own contribution to the cultural landscape. The two one act plays share a cast portraying multiple roles: Christina Leidel (2017 Suzi Bass Award winner), Michael A. Cook, Jared Nipper, Elizabeth Hammontree, Melanie Parker, and Michael Malone.
