Climbing the Volcano

Here's what our critics say:
...An enjoyable blend of absurdist comedy with actual drama...one can feel the tension of being on a mountainside with a guide you're not sure you can trust...
Robert Loerzel, Evanston Review
"Both surreal and existential, the text puts chaos theory into practice, as the disintegration of authority and spirit completely destroys the already fragile characters... The intimate confines of the Piccolo Theatre do not limit director Sarah Gabel's staging, and David Lee Bradke (light & sound design) creates the moods that highlights our characters' dualities – old vs. young, men vs. women."
