This Lime Tree Bower

Kafe Kerouac (2250 N. High) is finding its niche in the Columbus café scene. On occasion, they host small scale theatrical productions. The intimacy of a production with only 30-50 spectators is a special experience that happens to be one of my favorite forms of entertainment.

April 22-24 and 29-30, 8 pm Foolish Bison will be performing Conor McPherson's This Lime Tree Bower at Kerouac; $7 admission. Here's an excerpt from a preview from
"Suffice it to say, no actor will ever lose weight performing in any of these plays. McPherson's plays are not about action; they are about words: words woven together into stories. This Lime Tree Bower is, more than anything else, a study in the great art of storytelling, Irish-style.

Put three young American men together for an afternoon. They'll find a basketball and take turns putting their best spin on it, aiming to prove they're the best shot. But give three similarly-situated Irishmen an afternoon off, and they'll sit around spinning yarns. Or so it seems."
I'll remind you as the day approaches, but make a note to catch it. I'm sure it won't disappoint. I'll be trying to catch opening night and will give you my opinion of it here.
