Lonely Planet

Event Type: Theatre
Facility: TAR-Theatre Centre
Presented By: Student Theatre Production Board
Mature Audiences Only!

The Student Theatre Production Board presents Lonely Planet, by Steven Dietz, directed by Carlos Garcia. Set in "a small map store on the oldest street in an American city" Lonely Planet strives to 
portray the relationship between two men: Jody, the shop's owner, and Carl, his friend and sometime customer - who relate and react to what is happening in the world around them in very different ways. 
Jody reacts to the plague that is killing off his friends by retreating--moving into his shop and gradually shutting out customers--Carl tries to cling to the people he's losing: every time a friend dies, he takes 
a chair from the dead person's house and stores it in Jody's shop. The play was written during the midst of the AIDS epidemic, which is the central focus of the story, though ultimately the play sends 
the message that one should pay attention to the world around them and realize its problems rather than shun it.
