JUNE 3 to JUNE 18

Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., one Sunday matinee on June 5 at 2:00 p.m.

 



WORLD PREMIERE! Comedic, provocative, an eyeful and a brain twist.

Imago's Julia's Place, a riff off Ionesco's absurd classic Rhinoceros, with a cast of five comedic Imago knockabouts, puppetry, song and extreme zaniness opens June 3 plays through June 18 (details see below).

Tickets also available at the door. Theatre opens 1 hour prior. All seats $20. The show is for mature audiences due to language. See Covid policies below. Not really for children under 13, they will probably be bored.

Imago's writer/director Jerry Mouawad entered the world of Beckett when he opened To Fly Again (2018), creating a Mad Max world infused with clown and dance theatre. With Julia's Place, Mouawad pays homage to Ionesco's Rhinoceros. Here's how it works...

His wife turned into a rhino. Her girlfriend turned into a rhino, too. We've seen this dehumanizing insanity before. But with Julia's Place, Imago Theatre riffs on Ionesco's freakish scenario – of a populace devolving into horned beasts – to deliver a freshly philosophical farce. One part existentialism, two parts slapstick, this zany social satire incorporates shadow puppetry and pure buffoonery as its two lead characters – Porkchop (Josh Edward) and Ralph (Noel Olken) – figure out a way to survive the stampeding apocalypse with a trio of fellow misfits or, at least, get a plate of spaghetti from the kooky cafe owner (Carol Triffle) before the world ends.
