I'm so happy to be working for a second time with Dipika Guha, a genre-defying writer who has also penned the plays The Rules and Herculine and Lola. Her new play The Mechanics of Love is featured in the Shotgun Champagne Staged Reading series this month. Here's the blurb:
A man who forgets everything falls in love with a ballerina who forgets nothing--that is, until she falls in love with him. And his wife. And the mechanic. This madcap comedy explores how we love, how we choose, and the cost of making sense of it all.
Beth Wilmurt directs; the cast includes Rosie Hallett, Chris Libby, Sarah Mitchell, and Aaron Murphy. The reading will be performed Monday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 10 at 7 p.m. at the Ashby Stage in Berkeley. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. A talkback with the playwright follows Monday night's performance.
