Panda poop. [Oct. 23rd, 2008|06:11 pm]

Bob Ernst, 56, a high school drama tacher and playwright in San Francisco wrote a one-act play called The John, about a man named Alvin who meets Death in a theater men's room during an intermission of "King Lear." He staged the play in a men's room in the basement of the Maritime Hall in San Francisco, which he booked for $100 a day. Ernst, who plays both Alvin and Death, performed in front of 20 spectators who sat on folding chairs wedged into the space between the second and fourth stalls. Why write a play that takes place in a bathroom? "Death can happen anywhere, anytime," Ernst says. "Evis died in a john, you know. One minute you're here, the next you're gone. That's the way it is."


And some very cute twin pandas. :)

we have a local theatre group that does "on site" theatre - so far they've used a motel room, people's houses...and someplace else, i can't remember.

I like the idea of the play, its very true. furthermore, shoving twenty or so people into a bathroom sounds like a downright funny prospect.

LOL. A little cruel, though. A little mean to the audience.
