Additional Info

Unique and thought provoking with an ideal mixture of comedy and absurdist theatre. It begins with a solitary man standing in the center. He is tagged and proclaimed "it" by a younger man who darts onto the stage. The Man then sets out to either discover what "it" is or, if nothing else, to pass "it" off on someone else. The audience shares the confusion and frustration the Man feels, but the pieces eventually come together so that the mysterious nature of "it" becomes quite clear.
