Dallas — Audacity Theatre Lab presents its fourth Dallas Solo Fest, this year in a new location, at the Dallas Children's Theater. Look for interviews with all of the performers, and reviews of each show, coming on TheaterJones.

 

SHOWS AND PERFORMERS:

 

The Biscuiteater

Created and performed by Jim Loucks (Venice, CA)

Directed by Lisa Chess

Jim Loucks' rollicking solo performance draws on his Southern childhood to tell the story of a small-town policeman, loosely based on his Granddaddy, haunted by his shooting of a black man in the line of duty. As he nears the end of his life, he seeks redemption through teaching his grandson to respect life and to respect himself.

Drunk Lion

Created and performed by Chris Davis (Philadelphia, PA)

Directed by Mary Toumanen

A lonely alcoholic lion spends his days drinking into oblivion in a cantina, until he meets Chris, a young foreigner learning how to speak Spanish. The unlikely pair forge an intoxicated bond over life, love, and alcohol. 

Drunk Lion is written in Spanish and English, but it's all translated for you in the action, so no one is left behind! The writer Chris Davis lived for 3 years in Mexico, and the play documents some of his over-the-top experiences and ultimately is a dedication to his second home country. Chris embodies all of the characters exploring languages, loss, alcoholism, and how universal stories can be found in every corner of the world. Even Lions get drunk in cantinas!

 

Cody Clark: A Different Way of Thinking

Created and performed by Cody Clark (Louisville, KY)

Directed by Taylor Martin.

Magician Cody Clark has a different way of seeing the world. Whether it’s finding the magic in an everyday moment, or recreating an everyday moment with his magic, the magician’s art is never far from his mind.

Cody discovered his love for magic at age 11, 9 years and 9 months after his parents discovered he had autism. Through stage magic and story, sleight-of-hand and journey of mind, Cody will show you the world through his eyes. Maybe you’ll find that his way of thinking isn’t all that different from yours.

 

Meatball Séance

Created and performed by John Michael (Chicago, IL)

Directed by Janet Howe.

John Michael returns to the Dallas Solo Fest after his sell-out show Crossing Your I's (later retitled Dementia Me) at DSF 2014. Meatball Séance is his latest offering—quite literally—to the ghosts of memory. John Michael attempts to summon the spirit of his deceased mother so she can meet/approve of his new boyfriend. And what better way to connect than through her favorite recipe for meatballs?

 

Oh, Jesus! Or… An Actor, a Cynic and a Savior Walk Into a Bar

Created and performed by John S. Davies (Dallas, TX)

Directed by Matt Lyle.

Jesus is back (well, he says he's Jesus...) and he has daddy issues. The crucifixion/resurrection thing didn't work out so well the first time. The world is still in chaos, so he's convinced his Father to let him try again, but this time he's going to use 21st Century tech to get the word out. Unfortunately, he keeps getting interrupted by a cynic with a stick up his ass. Davies presents a strange and uproarious meta-journey into the landscape of faith and deception.

PerVirgin

Created and performed by Nkechi Chibueze (New Orleans, LA)

Directed by Eritria Pitts.

​Kechi is 34 years old and has never been kissed . . . and she REALLY wants to talk about it! Join Kechi as she lays out the blueprint to becoming a super virgin, shares her cringe-worthy crushalationships with lessons in love, reveals her grandiose plans for her first kiss, and explains how the Pussycat Dolls and Zumba are her sexy spirit animals!
