Theatre Exile, 1340 S. 13th Street
An Oak Tree is a darkly comic and moving play about loss, the power of suggestion, and the magic of the mind. A parent loses a child, a stage hypnotist loses his mojo, nothing is what it is. It’s like they're in a play – but they don’t know the words. Theatre Exile favorite Pearce Bunting is joined by a new actor each night, who walks on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in… until they’re in it. A breathtaking performance exploring a unique relationship - between a hypnotist and his subject, between one actor and another, and between an audience and the play itself.
“It is like watching your own heart being mugged. You know exactly how it is happening, but you still can’t prevent it.” — The Guardian
Appropriate for ages 13 and up.
