This is Like That
written by Michael Sean Cirelli
directed by Emerie Snyder
performed by Michael Sean Cirelli (Dream Up, Flying Solo) and Jordan Carlos (All For One)
A man walks into a lecture room and says to the class… no wait, sorry. So there’s a lecture hall, a slide projector, and an apple… there’s supposed to be a man? Oh right, the man walks in. So a man walks into a lecture room—no wait, there’s no apple. What I mean is he wants to tell the world about the beauty he finds in language, only he can’t find the words for it.
A show for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. This is Like That is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.
Also, there’s definitely an apple.
