Mom Play, Dad Play, Good Play, Bad Play Alexander Paris

About This Show

Synchronized swimmers dance underwater, ruminate, and make out. They stew in their own self-consciousness, ambition, identity, broken hearts. Over the course of the play they go from talking about swimming to talking about everything else, exploring bad theater conventions and aesthetic forms in this super meta deconstruction of traditional and downtown theater.
