Actor-writer David Sirk brings his own retrospective to life as he relives his youth in the neighborhood in his solo show "The Devil Winks," presenting a travelogue back in time for those who lived it and those who wish they did.
The first "Bound" follows the internal journey of a young woman striving to meet the pop culture estimate of the perfect body.
The next, "Ophelia Descends" details a young woman's journey on the road to understanding where she begins and her relationship ends.
"Purge Partners" is a dialogue between two strangers on the steps of an abortion clinic strained to deal with the societal and personal ramifications of the act itself. The final piece,
"Not an Ingénue" highlights a young woman's persona pilgrimage toward dealing with the definitions that the theatre and the world have placed upon her and cause her to wonder, are there any ingénues left?
Ms. Johnson plays the role of Carrie, a young woman seeking psychiatric evaluation after repeated complaints from friends and family of her alleged multiple 'personalities'. The show takes place in a doctor's office as Carrie rattles off her many media related experiences over the years, denying that these things have had any effect on her. Carrie swears that being an avid TV watcher is hardly grounds for a counseling session. Yet, as the play unfolds, the audience will see just how oblivious Carrie really is to everyone. This is a dynamite serio-comedy in one act and a definite must see!
