Midtown International Theatre Festival presents
An Agony Productions production
IN OUR OWN IMAGE
by Christopher Heath
at the 2010 Midtown International Theatre Festival
In Our Own Image is a series of three short plays, all of which are centered around a common theme. Wally and Jesus is a humorous exploration of death and our use of religion to deflect our personal turmoil. Big Boy Two Scoop is a frank reconciliation of a father and son after the son finally lives up his father’s dreams. Who Art In is an absurdist look at the potential consequences of our societal behavior.
Wally and Jesus, as a solo piece, premiered at BRIC in 2004 and was subsequently produced by Emerging Artists at the Fall EATFest 2005. That production received a positive review from Michael Wang of Show Business Weekly:
“[The] absurd opening comment is only the beginning, as the three repeatedly reenact the day Wally’s mother was shot. With each performance, more information and emotions are revealed about the nature of the shooting, bringing Wally and Jesus from a hilarious, bizarre opening to a powerful and sad conclusion.”

FOUR QUARTERS Published!

A "very interesting shell game as four people play two," (Stage Press Weekly) Four Quarters is a play in which two adults discover a love for their inner halves while searching for their other halves. Unique in style, this fast-paced play opened at the 2002 New York International Fringe Festival to critical acclaim. Elias Stimac from Back Stage called the play a "sexy, savvy…intriguing, if not altogether enlightening, examination of the elusive emotion called love."
"A very entertaining and compelling play." (nytheatre.com)
