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.

DESCRIPTION
Happy Anniversary- TO US! 2021 marks our 20th ride together and a return to riding with one another in person! Join us on Saturday, September 18th, 2021 as we head to the streets and ride some of the city’s historic areas, explore street art projects and take in its fabulous architecture. The ride provides bicyclists a unique opportunity to legally “take over” the streets of Motown.

Tour de Troit is a leisurely ride of approximately 25.6 miles with police escort; sweeper- and SAG-support; three mechanic “pit stops;” and one rest stop that includes a snack and mechanical support. The main ride will take off at 9 a.m.

The Tour de Troit starts and finishes at Roosevelt Park in the shadow of the Michigan Central Station, located at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Fourteenth Street in Corktown, Detroit. Michigan Avenue will have limited access to vehicular traffic on the day of the event between 14th and 20th streets at 7:30AM. There will be no parking on Michigan Avenue along the park, or anywhere in the park.

THE RIDE STARTS AT 9 AM. Line up into chutes starts at 8:30 AM.

ALL cyclists must be wearing their BIB and a helmet to ride in this event. Double, and triple check that you have the appropriate gear before leaving the house. To protect the safety of our riders, please note that no bags over 420 cubic inches (6.9 L) will be permitted on the ride. Be sure to bring a water bottle. We will have a water truck at the start/finish of the ride, as well as on Belle Isle. We will not be providing water bottles as we are committed to being a green event.

New in 2021, programming elements from Fall Flavor Weekends will be integrated within the Hallowe’en daytime hours for a family-friendly, harvest-themed atmosphere, transitioning into our traditional spooky Hallowe’en atmosphere as twilight falls.

Popular dining experiences like Hallowe’en Fairy Tale Feast in A Taste of History Restaurant and Eagle Tavern Harvest Supper will return in 2021 to delight guests of all ages and will be available to purchase online for the first time.
