August 25 & 26 | 7:30 PM | Free

Second play in the Summer Soup (free theatre by the Seat of OUr Pants) series. Play description: Is laziness the opposite of love? Is the search for the Self for total nobodies? These are questions posed through the prolific pen of Will Eno, one of America's leading contemporary playwrights, whose talents for playful idiosyncratic language shine through in "Gnit". Watch closely as Peter Gnit, a funny-enough but so-so specimen of humanity, makes a lifetime of bad decisions, on the search for his True Self, which is disintegrating while he searches. A rollicking and very cautionary tale about, among other things, how the opposite of love is laziness." Gnit" is a faithful, unfaithful, and willfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt, A 19th century Norwegian play which is famous for all the wrong reasons. Written by Will Eno, who has never been to Norway. Directed by Tricia Rodley Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
