Mission Viejo, CA – The Department of Theatre Arts at Saddleback College is thrilled to present AutoBahn, by critically acclaimed playwright, filmmaker and fiction writer Neil LaBute, on May 3-12 in the Studio Theatre. Directed by Beverly Arrowsmith, this collection of seven one-act plays is set within the confines of the automobile’s front seat. Each of these brief adult-themed vignettes explores the spirit of perception and relationship capturing the essence of Middle America and the myriad paths that cross its surface. From a make-out session gone awry to a kidnapping thinly disguised as a road trip, audiences will enjoy each one-act play titled Funny, Bench Seat, All Apologies, Merge, Long Division, Road Trip and AutoBahn.
Dates: May 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11 at 8 pm and May 5 and 12 at 3 pm. Tickets can be purchased by calling (949) 582-4656 (noon-4 Wednesday-Saturday) and online at www.saddleback.edu/arts. Prices are $15 general; $10 students/seniors.
