Who Am I This Time? - DPS ACTING EDITION

4 Male, 3 Female

Aaron Posner from Kurt Vonnegut Price: $9.99

Who am I This Time? (& Other Conundrums of Love) is adapted from three early comic masterpieces by Kurt Vonnegut - Long Walk to Forever & Who am I This Time? & Go Back to Your Precious Wife and Son - which are sewn together into a seamless evening of hilarity and humanity ...

Harry Nash, an insecure young man, searches for identity through participation in amateur theatricals

With a real life personality as bland as the leaf rakes in the hardware store where he works, he's of no interest to anyone

When handed a script, however, he asks, "Who am I this time?" and on the stage he becomes the role he plays

It can be powerful, witty or even cruel but, body and soul, Harry lives the role until the curtain falls

And then a girl falls in love with him

But it's with the Harry who is "in character"

With a single set, wonderful roles for seven versatile actors, and Vonnegut's singular wit and insight into human foibles, this is a smart, delightful comedy for the whole family

REVIEWS

"It takes love as its subject and handles it with the utmost skill …The overwhelming message, though, is one of hope, delivered with humor and heart … delightful" ~ Willamette Week

"This delightful, lyrical piece of love and simpler times … delivers just the right amount of fun … more than a few belly laughs of a more home-spun Vonnegut quality. Audiences will find themselves enchanted" ~ PortlandStageReviews.com
