Tech #5, Universal Corner

For the second time this weekend Patty Miles Van Beuzekom's play is being directed by Mr. Stan Shields. This time it's our evening's two-hander, purportedly to the pleasure of the playwright. Rumor has it Stan has elicited some additional help from other casts (as extras, I understand), but I see no sign of such a thing in tech. We'll see at eight o'clock. In the mean time, Nollette and Felker are killing it.

Though not much of the action of the play was gone over in tech, I gather it revolves around two men courting at a club, or after having met in one. The dialogue is terse, direct, muscular, written in a much earthier register than last night's "Three Ravens." Pretty neat.
