On December 14 and 15 of this month, Bingo Parallax will present a comedy-drama called "Happy Hour". Written by Rick Carr, this one act play is set in a bar during (you guessed it) "happy hour". We hear the characters discuss happiness and each's relative lack thereof.
The main character is Emory (played by David Cookson). Emory has come into the bar not to hit on Abbey (Allison Goh), although at one point he asks her "I'm not hitting on you... why are you letting me hit on you?" Abbey claims to be waiting, but for someone who is "not exactly coming." Two of Emory's old university friends stop in too, Queeg and Bean (Eric Fischbein and Amaya Munoz). They're now "very good friends" with "nothing exclusive." Rounding out the denizens of the bar is a happy drunk (Jon Heese) and a reticent bartender (Charles Katz). The play is directed by Jerry Jaffe.
The performances take place at Free Space K, in Kasuga. The Saturday show begins at 7:30, while Sunday's is an afternoon performance beginning at 2:30. Each show is followed by a party with cash bar. Tickets are 1000 yen each. For information about tickets, directions, or other information, please call Jerry at (0296)43-0499.
