Our Bad Magnet: March 26th thru April 26th
Directed by Carlo Lorenzo Garcia
On the shores of Scotland, three 9 year old boys begrudgingly befriend a troubled young outsider, a gifted but tormented child who harbors the ability to spin magical, often fable-like fairy tales. The boys, now men, reunite years later to try to piece together the circumstances that led to the mysterious disappearance of their childhood fascination.
Playwright Douglas Maxwell, one of Scotland’s brightest young writing talents, uses his own unique brand of dark humor to take us on a magical journey in which the boundaries between fantasy and reality merge with unpredictable results.
The production team for OUR BAD MAGNET includes: Thad Hallstein (scenic advisor), Stefin Sterberl (costume design), Matthew Gawryk (lighting design), Joe Court (sound design), Allison Goetzman (stage management advisor), Mike Sanow (technical director), and Anthony DeMarco (stage manager).
