Opening Morning

Posted on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 7:41 AM

“Opening Morning” is a short one-hander written by local playwright Stephen Pitman. It’s the story of a young writer teetering on the edge of success and is told in a series of phone conversations with his smothering mother and unsupportive girlfriend. It’s a difficult set-up to pull off, as it can be boring to watch someone talk on the phone and to listen to only one side of a conversation. However, actor Dylan Aucoin is a pleasure to watch. His manner is very natural, and he makes it seem as if there really is someone on the other end of the line. The dialogue is well written in that the audience can actually fill in the unheard side of the conversation for themselves. It’s not a play that’s going to set the world on fire, but it makes for good fringe fare.

Show times: Saturday Aug. 30 at 3:30 and 9:45, Thursday Sept. 4 at 8:30, Friday Sept. 5 at 8:30, Saturday Sept. 6 at 10:00 at 10:00 and Sunday Sept. 7 at 4:30 at Khyber 2. $3.
