Written and performed by Chris Davis
Directed by Mary Tuomanen
Chris, a struggling solo artist working at a movie theater goes on a surreal adventure into his subconscious while popping popcorn. On his journey to confront his existential and artistic anxieties, he encounters a bizarre cast of characters, including a defamed 19th century actress, a violent fringe producer, and a large bear. This fast paced one-man show explores the meaning of success and rejection through the extraordinary and often fantastical travels of one artists mind. The Presented examines what it means to be a "chosen" artist in the world today in a hilarious and insightful 50-minute show that will make you never want to pursue a career in the arts.
