The Meetinghouse Theatre Lab’s performance of a staged reading during the Schoodic Arts Festival, on Thursday, August 10, will be Loose Canon by Brian Reno and Gabriel Vega Weissman.
From Moliere in IKEA to Chekhov in a Taco Bell, this series of short comedies satirizes the world of the American consumer in the style of canonical playwrights. It’s a walk through history . . . if history were a strip mall.
“Loose Canon bridges the knowledge of a theatre history class with the raucous fun of sketch comedy, literate without being pretentious, funny without being dumb.” NY TheatreNow.com
Loose Canon, held together with satire about consumerism, presents each short play in the style of different masters, using their techniques, even including a Greek chorus.
