18 Victoria: A New Play by Cody Daigle
Acting Unlimited is pleased to present 18 VICTORIA, a new play by local playwright, Cody Daigle.
In a trio of interlocking monologues, 18 VICTORIA tells the story of three siblings -- Ben, Catherine and Stephen -- who are struggling to piece together their broken family relationship in the wake of their father’s untimely death. But a larger crisis looms. 18 Victoria, an asteroid the size of a few city blocks, is on a trajectory to collide with Earth and will cause an extinction event on the scale of the one that killed the dinosaurs.
As they share their stories of facing the last days of the human race, they also grapple with memories of their father, a troubled childhood, and their shared inability to connect as adults.
In an apocalyptic present, it’s the wreckage of the past that endures.
18 VICTORIA stars three local veteran actors -- Cody Daigle, Cara Hayden and John Snyder -- and runs for three performances only on May 16-18, 2013 at Theatre 810 (810 Jefferson Street) in downtown Lafayette. Curtain is 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $10.
