Let’s pretend for a second that we’re OK. What does that feel like? A lot of things are not OK with Thomas but he’s got a ten-pound sledge hammer and is pretty sure that could solve at least one of his problems. This is a show that he wrote. Because we are walking around polishing silverware or running schools or arresting jaywalkers, and dying all the time and no one is saying anything. We aren’t talking because we don’t have words. Or we have those words but to say them could be worse. A punk performance-lecture on clinical depression.

If he howls will you howl back? If we howl together will we be healed?

“dark, vulnerable, and beautiful…we need more art like this.” – The Theatre Reader

“McKechnie and director Michael Reinhart have found a unique way to present the story. The effect is startling…[we] feel the mounting pressures and high stakes involved.” – NNNN; Now Magazine 

“…moving, intelligent, funny, helpful and goddamn brave; you need to see it.” – My Entertainment World 

Directed by Michael Reinhart, Scenography by Claire Hill, Assistant Direction by Julia Matias

About the artist: zeitpunktheatre was formed to produce and disseminate urgent political and social interventions. Our work focuses on making complicated ideas manifest on the stage. This centres around questions of ideology and how a person can and should live in the world. We attempt to put forth in my work questions that challenge how individuals live within a society. We are also interested in a theatre outside of fourth-wall realism; theatre that welcomes the audience into the space to witness or participate.
