11/11-15: A Flock of Seagulls & more at CPT



After debuting last year at the bare-bones play-reading program Oddy Fest, Stuart Hoffman’s philosophical meta-play A Flock of Seagulls is now working its way up the theatrical food chain, having landed a spot in Cleveland Public Theatre’s Little Box series. In the piece, Jake and Barry learn that they’re characters trapped in a play and, having found the script, they begin to argue whether to follow it or live their own lives. Questions about free will are further complicated by a higher force that’s trying to make decisions for them. The play is directed by Derek Koger, with Sean Galligan and Brian McNally in the lead roles. Little Box is also presenting Jaclyn Villano’s Wave, a one-woman show starring Marla Williams and directed by Michael Parsons. Showtime is 7:30 tonight. CPT’s Little Box series is unveiling new plays all weekend. Tomorrow at 7:30 p.m., it’s Ian Adler (a.k.a. Matt Greenfield)’s The Musicalling. On Saturday at 7:30 p.m., it’s Claire Robinson May’s Mother Tongue and Tara Broeckel Ooten’s Bon Voyage, Mon Oie (Goodbye, My Goose). And at 3 p.m. Sunday, it’s Jen Massina’s Girl, followed by Ryan Ramer’s Au Bout de Son Latin. All performances take place in CPT’s Storefront Studio (6415 Detroit Ave., 216.631.2727). Tickets: $10. — Michael Gill
