Painful Adventures

Available in Library

The complicated story of Ms. Seabottom, in all her glory, with all her diagrams, PowerPoint slides, fathers, and machines as told by her ex and faithful yet unreliable chronicler, Mr. Heights. A slideshow play that riffs on Pericles and the theater machines of Nicola Sabbattini.
