This Random World: The Myth of Serendipity @ Open Book Theatre Company
Sep 10 – Oct 10 all-day
This Random World: The Myth of Serendipity @ Open Book Theatre Company | Trenton | Michigan | United States

Date of Event: Sept 10 – Oct 10, 2021

Event Name: This Random World: The Myth of Serendipity
Location of Event: Open Book Theatre Company: 1621 West Road, Trenton
Event Description: **This show was slated for April 2020, and was cancelled due to social distancing measures. We’re so excited to announce that we’ll be opening our 8th season with this play!Mining the comedy of missed connections, THIS RANDOM WORLD asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.

“…affecting…The characters are drawn with empathy and humor, and the cascading series of coincidences neatly illustrates the idea that, as the title suggests, we are all hostages to chance.” —The New York Times. “…succeeds on every level…It’s the sort of play you walk away from having fallen completely in love with every person on the stage…The play is also fast and funny, delivering constant comedy that comes from the characters and their foibles, including numerous instances of the laughter that comes from a place of painful self recognition.” —Arts-Louisville.com.

Featuring Joshua Brown, Kez Settle, Karen Minard, Krystle Dellihue, Kryssy Becker, Alysia Kolascz, Tim Pollack, and Lindel Salow. Lighting design by Harley Miah. Costume design by Cheryl Zemke.

*This play contains some adult language. This show has no intermission. A water based haze will be used during the production.
