This sounds awesome, but what’s the play about?
First of all, thank you. Second of all, you’re right. PORTRAIT AND A DREAM, a darkly comic memory play that rebounds across time and space, follows three young people as they navigate the treacherous waters of relationships, careers and brunch. Nick and Annie met on a park bench, tumbling into a whirlwind of romance. Annie and Paige met in 10th grade English and have been best friends ever since. It all seems so perfect; but life is never simple and love is never pure. When best-laid plans go awry, Nick must confront an impossible question: How do you survive the end of the world?
Whoa, I’m intrigued. But who are you?
We are the Cabbages and Kings Theatre Company. Named for its dedication to the serious and the silly, Cabbages and Kings Theatre Company blends high and low art into a single, vibrant dramatic force that speaks to our world, present and future. We welcome audiences into our world, inviting all to explore the fundamental challenges—and pleasures—of being human.
I’m hooked. Where can I find out more?
Like us on facebook, follow us on twitter (@PortraitFringe) or check out our official posting on the Fringe website. And stayed tuned for more info on the where and the when as well as exciting and awesome details of the play, the people, the process and, in general, a portrait of PORTRAIT.
I did all those things, but I still want more. It’s like I can’t get enough!!!!
