Eight Things That Start With A
Conceived, directed, with short films and puppets by Carrie Morris.
Written and performed by Carrie Morris and Patrick Elkins.
Based on Wagner’s Saga of the Volsungs and a satirical comment on Hollywood’s current obsession with charity, Eight Things… begins in Los Angeles with a young actress named Tangerina Holie, who is visited by aliens and spends the rest of the play trying to figure out exactly what her life is all about. Taking the audience on a journey (literally) to Africa, Antarctica and then Atlantis, Eight Things… helps us realize that deep down, we’re all a little bit out of this world.
