I was part of a preview audience for a play that will have its world premiere at the B Street Theater in Sacramento Sunday evening, Lune (Pronounced Loony). The setting is the premises and grounds of the Acme Corporation — yes, that Acme Corporation. I’m not sure exactly how to describe it, but take a dose of existential angst from Waiting for Godot and toss in the unseen management of Acme Corporation from the Looney Tunes cartoons and you’ll be in the right ballpark. If you like existentialism, minimalist theater, and being confused, this may be just the diversion for you. As it was, it did give Diane and I an excuse to snuggle up close in a chilly, dark place. I think the actors did fine with what they had, but I couldn’t help thinking that if that could get produced, I’ve gotta try my hand at writing a play sometime.
