What if the moment you’re in is the only one that matters? Could it be that, as one of the characters posits, you’ve never done anything — so you’ve never done anything wrong?
That’s the central question of aMios’s production of In the Meantime by David L. Williams, directed by Rachel Dart. I had the pleasure of taking in an invited dress, and I can vouch for it — this is a fun play with well-placed laughs, but which will have your head awhirl when it ends.
Still, as you’ll hear in the podcast, at it’s heart, “it’s about three people in a bar, and the trouble that can bring.”
Listen in as Rachel, David & I discuss this play about the present, the possibility of an “anti-Boal” that dedicates theatre to being as selfish as possible, writing in bars, having work in your back pocket ready to go, and that ever-annoying question to any theatre artist: “what’s your play about?”
