“an unexpected ride… sharply imaginative …Makes you laugh out loud while it’s quietly breaking your heart. … a well-paced hour and packs the concise wallop of a good novella, …animated jaunt through the Sunday comics, a cartoon landscape inhabited by characters with the oddball normality of the townsfolk in Robert Altman’s Popeye … settle slowly, almost imperceptibly, into a deep and moving contemplation of the human condition… the trap door of humanity and opens it to a miracle of grace”

Bob Hicks, Oregon Arts Watch

Imago Theatre’s The Reunion, Six Characters in Search of the Punch

John, her husband, is continually ignored. Dolores, his wife, tells all she meets that she’s dying. The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness. Live music jolts the absurdity to bubbly heights and side tracks serious moments into comedic ditches. The Reunion can’t be codified and flies like a wild aircraft ricocheting off muddy memories, regrets and the uncertainty of hope. Dolores (Danielle Vermette) is an enthusiastic but reluctant pilot of her life. On her one and last night’s voyage, Delores refuses to touch down. Nonetheless, all is good when she lands smoothly, easily and unharmed (almost).

    What could be better than a poor person winning tickets to a live theatre show? Don’t answer that.
