Pear Slices 2018
|Ariel Aronica and Bill C. Jones|
A dusty town in the old West, a cell holding Galileo imprisoned, a home where technological devices rule, a kid’s pirate birthday party, a ‘rolly-doggy’ oven of hot dogs in rotation: All are examples of the varied settings in time and place for this year’s menu of Pear Slices 2018, an annual array of eight, original, one-act plays produced by Pear Theatre that range from the sublime to the absurd, from out-loud hilarious to grippingly touching, from a time centuries ago to a time somewhere in the not-too-distant future.
