The Common: An Experience For One Person In A Public Place 

Director Dustin Harvey and writer Rob Plowman create a site-specific play that takes you on a walk through the original Commons space.

The Black Eyed Peas might rock that body, while softball leagues sulk in the suburbs about losing their fields, but The Common: An Experience For One Person In A Public Place captures the heart and history of that contentious green space with the complicated reputation. The Common is a site-specific play that takes you on a walk through the original Commons space (which was much bigger years ago), starting in the North Common, up Bell Road, through the Public Gardens to Victoria Park. It is probably the most intimate performance you'll ever participate in: You're the star and the only audience, set on a journey through the city with only a voice on an iPod, a book and your imagination as a guide. It may also be the trippiest theatre experience you'll have while sober. Without giving away details (the surprises are delightful), director Dustin Harvey and writer Rob Plowman have constructed a dreamlike world twisted up with historical facts, mythology and serendipitous encounters. Expect to be entertained, educated, to get emotional and to never look at a park bench the same way again.
