 "A Delicate Conundrum: The Tetris Play"

Gary has been in the care of Waverly for a long time after having experienced a traumatic event that has left him unstable. Obsessed with the game Tetris, which is touted for its therapeutic effects, Gary keeps some demons at bay while the game becomes more of a crutch with each passing day.  Waverly and Gary exercise their issues to reach new ground and keep post-traumatic flashbacks to a minimum. It is ultimately left in the hands of the audience to delicately guide Gary towards tranquility or leave him anguished in a pit of  post-traumatic despair.

Friday and Saturday at 8pm.
Sunday matinee at 2pm.
approximate run time is one hour with no intermission

Tickets:  $5
