Do you like things that are "visceral," "shocking" and "dynamic," yet are somehow still comedies? You're in luck, then.
At the BQT's Brooklyn debut this Tuesday, we have tickets to just such an entertainment entity: the Off Broadway mind-diddle pool (no water) (playing at 9th Space, part of the PS 122 complex in the East Village). Produced by the One Year Lease Theater Company (key members of which are among the BQT's newest fans), pool (no water) is written by Mark Ravenhill, an internationally acclaimed playwright best known for Shopping and Fucking (I enjoy doing one of those things only if it means I'll then get to do the other). It's described as "a visceral and shocking play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success," as the group of friends ask themselves, "could someone's suffering be the group’s next work of art?" Intriguing!
I'll be attending the next night, this Wednesday, which happens to be premiere; the show runs till May 26, and you can pick up your tickets right here. Or, just kick ass at Tuesday's quiz and claim a couple passes for free. See how that works?
