ONE ACTS: HEART'S DESIRE & JESUS HECTOR CHRIST

Genre: Other
Heart's Desire written by Caryl Churchill, Jesus Hector Christ written by Ian Schoen

From the company that produced the critically acclaimed, smash hit Twelfth Night: The Drinking Game ("conceptual and comestible" The New York Times) comes an evening of one-act plays that packs a heavy theatrical punch. Legitimate Theater Company member Max Seide directs Caryl Churchill's staggering surrealist piece Heart's Desire. Couple Brian and Alice wait for their daughter Suzy to return from Australia. Along with Brian's sister Maisie, they want the homecoming to be just right. Their perfect occasion, however, is interrupted by bickering and the arrival of unexpected guests, including their alcoholic son, gun-toting visitors and a giant bird. Acclaimed British playwright Churchill's absurd satire offers an entertaining view of what can and cannot be controlled.

Legitimate Theater Company founding member Ian Schoen directs the world premiere of his latest play, Jesus Hector Christ. When a crisis befalls Clyde and his girlfriend Natalie, they both turn to Tim for moral support, a place to crash, and an answer to the questions they are afraid to ask. What results is an insightful examination of three characters that are unable to say what needs to be said.
