Stone and The Maguffin
Stone Soup Theatre Arts presents evening of two one-acts: Edward Bond's Stone, a chilling fairy tale, explores the power and the risks of finding one's own place in the world as a young man is asked to deliver a seemingly ordinary stone to a mason's house. The puppet character elements in this production will be the first of such re-imagining for Stone, originally commissioned by England's Gay Sweatshop Theatre during the 1970's. The Maguffin, by Adam Hunault and Stone Soup Theatre Arts, speculates what happens when the gay marriage movement dies, creating a frenzied attempt by the Republican Party to preserve their mainstream identity. In order to perpetuate their struggle against the agenda of the liberal left, they attempt to revitalize the gay marriage platform. This original farce takes a decidedly modern look at how contemporary political issues are exploited by sound-bite politician's need for media control and re-election.
