Four Actors in Search of A Moment
Written and directed by Jeff Nichols
The latest version of Four Actors employs a highly physicalized movement style developed in rehearsal by Jeff Nichols and Off-Leash Area‘s Jennifer Ilse. Live music by members of The Poor Nobodys and a solo dance by Jennifer Ilse complete the performance event surrounding hapless actors: Adam Scarpello, Jody Bee, Eric Cohen, and Karen Elaine Massey.

Bereft of identity and personal gravity, four actors are lost on the stage. Filling their time with theatre games, switching roles, word-play, and their own twisted versions of classics, the four gradually reclaim memories of their real selves. A comic journey to self-realization in the guise of a theatrical reality, Four Actors in Search of a Moment follows a script to its logical conclusion, then abandons it.
