Frostburg State’s University Theatre will present Melanie Marnich’s “Quake,” on April 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. and April 15 at 2 p.m. in F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre located in the Performing Arts Center.
“Quake” is a dark comedy that follows the exploits of a young woman named Lucy as she travels the country in an idealistic quest for the “perfect love.” However, she is soon entangled in a succession of surreal, contorted affairs that merely accentuate the mundane realities of human interaction. As events escalate into a collage of absurdity and the grotesque, Lucy begins to admire from afar the brilliance, power and control of a notorious female astro-physicist turned serial killer.
Alternatively labeled an abstract comedy, a picaresque fantasy, an episodic parable and a surreal gambit, “Quake” provides an unusual, entertaining, yet thought-provoking look at the many problems of human connection.
