Wang Dang by Tom Noonan, directed by George Toles, remounted

January 14, 2015 — 

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
