Alanis will be performing in the play "An Oak Tree" at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles, Sunday January 31 at 7pm. For tickets and more information, visit www.anoaktreela.com.
A father loses his daughter to a car. Nothing now is what it is. The man who was driving the car is a stage hypnotist who has lost the power of suggestion. For him, everything now is exactly what it is. For the first time since the accident, these two men meet when the Father volunteers for the Hypnotist's act. In this remarkable play for two actors, the Father is played by a different actor at each performance. The actor walks on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play…until he or she is in it. This is a breath-taking projection of a performance, given from one actor to another, from a hypnotist to their subject, from the audience to the stage. It is a haunting play about loss, suggestion and the power of the mind. Read more..
AN OAK TREE has played more than 250 times in 13 different countries with as many different types of actors - young, old, male, female, black, white, British, Irish, Mexican, American, Lithuanian, Latvian, Russian, etc. AN OAK TREE is performed by its playwright, Tim Crouch, who plays the role of The Hypnotist. The role of the Father is played by a new actor at each performance who has neither read nor seen the play before! This is not improvisation. The whole piece is scripted. Curious? Come see the show!
