Earth Plays (Part Two of the Elements Cycle)

Cleveland Public Theatre

This assemblage of short pieces, conceived and directed by nine people and then further developed by nineteen cast members, addresses different aspects of our clusterfucked environment. This is part two of CPT's Elements Cycle, which began last month with the stunning Water Ways and will continue in the future.  While not as consistently enthralling as Water Ways, Earth Plays offers a number of memorable moments and only goes theatrically awry when it insists on delivering its worthwhile messages wrapped around a rock and repeatedly thumped on the audience's head. One wonders how activist, issue-oriented theater needs to fashion itself for the 21st century. when it may be too late for many things—including earnest skits and interesting dances.
