Shoot outs on the dusty frontier, slights of hand, and a comet with the power to turn the ordinary into the spectacular…the specter of a familiar director resurrected by the lonely flickering of a ghost light…a group of friends and a fictional rehearsal room not unlike our own..what is the performance and what is the truth? Perhaps they are one and the same. Come with us on the journey and we’ll find out together. …And the Great Refraction! Is a love letter, an homage, and a behind-the-scenes invitation to the entire art form of the theatre. Three layers of constantly evolving story-a rip-roaring adventure melodrama, the fictional company of actors creating and rehearsing it, and the individual voices of our own company breaking through the fourth wall-all form the intricately faceted framework of a performance that aims to keep the audience constantly questioning where the real world ends and the show begins. After all, are they not really one and the same?  Performances: July 11 through July 27 Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm. Tickets $15, available at Brown Paper Tickets.
