Flash Festival at the Page Museum












In the spirit of Wicked Lit (see last October's post), Chalk Repertory Theatre is another company performing "classical and contemporary plays in unconventional spaces." One of their current installments is Flash Festival, with the dioramas at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits as the setting.

If you know the Page, you'll recognize these five locations for the plays: fishbowl laboratory, timeline wall, tar pull and theater, giant mammoth, and dire wolf skull wall. My favorite was an unraveling love story between two dire wolves, now represented by just their skulls. Mind you, one of the skulls was "repaired" with a piece from a third skull, and the bonus personality makes for a hilarious tale.

This run is over, but Chalk Rep has other offerings down the pike. Go see something fun!
