Hokey Pokey Playby Carolyn Classen on Oct. 03, 2012, under Arts, Life
“Put your right hand in, put your right hand out… and do the hokey pokey and turn yourself about”.
I loved that song in Kindergarten. And here it is again in a new play at the Cabaret Theater of the Temple of Music and Art.
In case you can’t read the small print above:
What happens when a clown who isn’t funny, a writer who doesn’t write, a black magician who wants to turn himself white and a con-man selling an elixir that cures baldness and hemorrhoids confront one another in the common room of the institution in which they are housed? Madness!
Kayner’s plays have won a variety of awards and played to full houses and noteworthy reviews.
These include -
Thumbs – ‘The play wraps profound ideas in true-sounding interchanges for an incredible effect’
Noche de los Muertos – ‘a brilliant schematic’’, ‘lyrically written’, ‘a fine play’
The Funniest Joke in the World – ‘heartfelt and compelling’
Language of Flowers – ‘is a hauntingly beautiful play’
SEE YOU AT THE HOKEY POKEY!
Produced in association with Old Pueblo Playwrights.
Call 520-297-3317 for tickets. I wonder why the word playwrights isn’t spelled “playwrites” as that is what they do, write plays. Enjoy this play.
