It may look like an ordinary green, square concrete building next to P’s Market at 28th and T Streets on the outside; but drama has come to our neighborhood’s own Ooley’s Theatre at 2007 28th Street. “The Shadow Box,” a play by Michael Cristofer, is currently being performed by the company Another Square Production at Ooley’s Theatre.
The production company’s website describes the play this way: “In cottages set in the wooded grounds of a large hospital…three patients and their families come to term with their lives and their commitments to each other.” It’s described as “a powerful drama, lightened with wry humor.” The play contains adult language and themes, and is recommended for ages 16 and over.
“The Shadow Box” will be performed Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. between November 6 and 21, and between December 4 and 12. It will also be performed on Sundays at 2 p.m. on November 15, 22, and on December 6.
Tickets are $15 general admission; $12 for seniors, California State employees, and SARTA members; and $10 for students. Seating space is limited, so reservations are strongly recommended. Please also note that the at-door box office only takes cash or checks. For reservations and other information, please call (503) 703-8678; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; or visit the Another Square Production website.
