Wang Dang by Tom Noonan, directed by George Toles, remounted
Distinguished professor George Toles calls film actor and New York City playwright Tom Noonan “the playwright of ontological insecurity.”
Now the company Snakeskin Jacket, which includes U of M Black Hole Theatre alumni Ivan Henwood, Jane Walker, is mounting a “re-play” of their 2014 Fringe Festival hit, Tom Noonan’s Wang Dang. The limited four-night run will act as a fundraiser for the company and their brand new Studio 315.
“It’s 1997. A heat wave, a cheap motel room without air conditioning registered to a career-stalled film director hired for a campus speaking engagement. Three people converge to internally debate the great questions: whether to have casual sex either to boost one’s ego or possibly advance one’s career. A pizza arrives, a drink is spilled, opening the floodgates for existential shenanigans (by turns tense and ludicrous) of the sort that would astonish God Himself, if only He existed.” – Director, George Toles
