Finally, David Susman's Zeno's Arrow is a light, clever little riff on the ancient Greek's theory of ever more infinitesimal, ultimately unachievable distances between bodies: Zeno's Arrow (Kara Haupt) can never entirely become one with her Target (Tristan Rolfe). Susman's writing is brisk and punchy, remains whimsically allegorical, has a deftly sketched arc, and certainly makes a good point.
Program B of short plays, billed as The Perils of Company, includes another six plays: Megan Tripaldi's Cat Scratch; Date Night at Al's Bar and Grill by Dan Hadley; Delvyn Case Jr.'s Delestage; Michael Kimball's Janey Succumbs to Polar Madness; Charlie Cole's Stel; and Carolyn Gage's Radicals. ^
