A Comedic Thriller
By David Tristram
Directed by Mark Baer
September 8-10, 15-17, 21-24
A mesmerizing thriller with plenty of twists and a liberal dash of comedy ... The Great Gordo, an alcoholic stage hypnotist in the twilight of his career, randomly chooses Alan Briggs as his next stooge. Briggs, a mild-mannered policeman, is a good sport, the audience laughs, and everyone goes home. For Gordo, it's just the end of another show, and time for a drink or three before bed, but someone out there has other ideas. Extraordinary ideas. The mind games begin, the stakes are raised, and we sense there can only be one winner-But who? Will it be the Great Gordo, Alan Briggs or his wife, Helen Briggs?
