I’m going to see you in this dark place…
minor theater in association with Lingua Franca Arts presented four encore showings of Julia Jarcho’s GRIMLY HANDSOME (OBIE award for Best New American Play, 2013) during the 2015 Association of Arts Presenters (APAP) conference.
A pair of sinister Christmas tree salesmen have come to wreak havoc on our fair city. A pair of detectives are bent on catching the killer. A young woman finds herself drawn into their cat-and-mouse games and transformed in ways she could never have imagined. Meanwhile, wild animals have been sighted in the vacant lot across the street. Are they dogs? Raccoons? Or something more ferocious?
