Buntport Theater Company

Davis first told me about their production of Moby Dick. Then Colorado Public Radio did an interview about their tenth season, where they are remounting past productions. Last night, we saw Buntport Theater Company's original production (well, they write and produce all of their own work) of Kafka on Ice. It depicts the life of Franz Kafka together with scenes from The Metamorphosis. All on ice.

It was the most imaginative play I've seen in ages. The actors were outstanding. There's a hilarious scene with an English teacher using a lesson plan downloaded from the Internet to talk to her students about symbolism. There's a remote control insect used to wonderful effect. And a sheet from a sanitorium bed is transformed into a rippling sea. There are reviews of the show on the the Buntport website.

I look forward to seeing these guys more often.
