The Reckoning were impressive last night at their “experimental” show. They invited anyone in the summer intensive to suggest a form for the show. Some guy (Derek I think his name is) invented something he calls the Big Bukowski. It involved a short reading of a Charles Bukowski poem (randomly) from an anthology, followed by a scene, then another poem and a scene till the end.
They got through 5 or so poems. I assume some of the players were testing out new accents or characters because certain people (there were 4 of them, 2 women), brought a similar energy to their characters.
They do their “real” show on Thursday night, so we’ll see what happens.
