In front of invisible students Professor Segrob gives a circular lecture at a bare table with blank notes turning on and off a film projector that plays an imageless movie while tries to write on a black board with chalk that makes no marks. His lecture winds on, in and about the labyrinthian writings of Jorge Luis Borges yet whenever the Professor begins down one path he is forever and endlessly taken on another fork, in an infinitely miserable tortuous (painful to him but not the audience) crooked metaphysical journey. Professor Segrob is confronted by a facist theatre troupe demanding control of Imago Theatre. He keeps the facist at bay as he begs the writers of the lecture, Matt DiBiasio and Jerry Mouawad who sit in the house, DiBiasio's twin and Mouawad as himself). He begs them to please complete the flawed lecture so the show and himself can find relief in this misery withouy an ending. Ultimately a mysterious dog enters ("Juice", a real dog) bites on an electrical cord, gets electrocuted (no animals are injured) which kills "Juice" but completes a black out to end the professor's pain. FORK AND FORK AND FORK AND FORK is Imago's 2nd of three shows in it's series NEXT WAVE FESTIVAL.
