ENTANGLEMENT
A Historical Fantasy of Almost-Love and Almost-Loss, Art History and Entry-Level Quantum Physics

Written by Les Hunter

Directed by Christine McBurney

Entanglement reimagines the 1925 moment when physicist Erwin Schrödinger discovered quantum mechanics. In this alternate history, Schrödinger's breakthrough in physics (and love) is inspired by art historian Gertrud Bing. Bing and her mentor Aby Warburg famously asserted that all societies develop at a relatively similar and interconnected rate, despite differences of space and time. This theory is spookily similar to the phenomena of quantum entanglement, which holds that two particles, once entangled, move and change at the same moment. Schrödinger made this discovery during a two-and-a-half week sexual spree in the Swiss Alps. Cats may or may not have been killed.

Stranded

A radio play by Edward J. Walsh

Directed by Tim Tavcar

Featuring Agnes Herrmann 

Vickie Schultz, a reporter, is not happy. Let go by her newspaper in Cincinnati, she starts a new job in New Jersey without her family, friends, and cheating fiancé. Vickie expects to cover a breaking story about the Mayor and his female Police Chief. Instead, she’s assigned to the arrival of a whale on the shore — a huge pelagic mammal, not unlike the mythical Moby Dick. The sooner this stranded subject returns to the ocean (or doesn’t), the sooner Vickie gets her career back on track. As with her own struggles, though, the whale’s plight won’t be resolved quickly.

Recorded at Bad Racket studio in January 2018. Recording © 2018 by Playwrights Local. Stranded © 2017 by Edward J. Walsh.

Flame Puppy

A play for voices written & directed by Mike Geither

Featuring Benjamin Gregg, Beau Reinker, Amy Schwabauer, & Lauren B. Smith

A beatnik finds peace through visions of a mythic turkey. A legless lout survives a ruthless drug dealer and rises to fame by manufacturing trailer hitches. The origin of the human body is recounted by two friendly anthropologists. And to bring them all together – a house-sized puppy made entirely of flame.
