The Theatre @ Boston Court's 2016 3-play season includes the world premiere of Colony Collapse, by Stefanie Zadravec, the Southern California premiere of The Golden Dragon, by Roland Schimmelpfennig, and a National New Play Network rolling world premiere of Bars and Measures, by Idris Goodwin.
What starts out as a simple toothache evolves into a dizzying chain of events as a group of disparate people, played by a cast of five who assume many roles indiscriminate of age, gender, and race, struggle to make connections in an increasingly isolated world. At the center of the story is a Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, The Golden Dragon, where a young Chinese man suffering from an oversensitive incisor sparks a whacked and weird series of interconnected stories. A delicious mixture of epic theatre, bizarre comedy, poetry, and fable combine to create this fabulous pho.
