Eyes and the Object

When: March 15-20, 8 p.m. 2010

Eyes and the Object is Loosen the Noose Productions’ second offering, and like its first--- last year’s terrific Rain---it is breathtakingly original. However, unlike Rain, its narrative is much less comprehensible and accessible. In a nutshell, a brilliant scientist/artist (Mike McLeod) has followed in his cold and distant father’s footsteps and built a machine that transports a “woman” called Portia Blue from another realm. Portia (Margaret Legere) arrives without memory or a heart and brings with her a mischievous and/or malevolent spirit (Melissa Noona) whom the scientist cannot see. Despite her physical beauty, it’s difficult to understand why the scientist is so obsessed with the cold and inhuman Portia. The language tends to the overly poetic, adding confusion where clarification is needed. In fact, the play itself is a little like Portia herself: Lovely to look at, but searching for a heart.– Kate Watson

With a Saturday show at 2pm. Email ticketes@loosenthenooseproductions.com or call 402-6764 for tickets.
