Horrocks (and Toutatis Too)
two monologues by Mac Wellman

Wrench, a short post-apocalyptic play
by Elana Greenfield
directed by Kenneth Prestininzi
THE MADNESS OF SMALL WORLDS pairs legendary playwright Mac Wellman’s monologues, Horrocks (and Toutatis Too) and Wu World Woo, with Whiting Award-winning playwright Elana Greenfield’s Wrench.
Wellman’s monologues lay out the madness of our world in side-splittingly funny verbal acrobatics as the actors bounce words around the stage like electrons. Erin Mallon will perform Horrocks (and Toutatis Too), and Timothy Siragusa will perform Wu World Woo with all-star indie band Electric Chamber Music.
Greenfield’s Wrench (performed by Kate Snodgrass and Katie Pearl), which takes place somewhere on Earth with two women on ladders, inhabits a world so unrecognizable that we may as well be on an asteroid. But words themselves remain vital, urgent, and filled with endless possibility.
