“If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” – Carl Sagan
“Yes, the gods are on the park bench, the gods are on the bus,
The gods are all here, the gods are in us.” – Kate Tempest
Inspired by the quotes above, guest artists Theater Grottesco (Santa Fe, NM) share a webcast of their acclaimed production PIE – a comedic, magical exploration of what happens when you don’t know what to do next. The play begins as four lovable fools arrive at a panel discussion, only to find that their moderator is a noshow. As tensions rise in a series of Rube Goldbergian accidents, the characters have a have a collective nervous breakdown, unleashing their inner gods, and accidentally destroy and reinvent the universe. Following the show, there will be a livestreamed talkback with Theater Grottesco.
PIE is made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, with lead funding from the Andrew Mellon Foundation. And by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and the City of Santa Fe Arts Commission and the 1% Lodgers Tax.
