Tickets go on sale Jan. 2 for Magenta Theater’s January 20th Black Chair Project. The performance features four one-act plays from two collections: three one-acts from All in the Timing by David Ives, and one from Outstanding Short Plays edited by Craig Pospisil.

Black Chair Project is a progressive and exciting branch of Magenta Theater performing staged readings of plays throughout the year. It utilizes the bare minimum of rehearsal time. The set consists of black chairs and black tables in front of whatever happens to be onstage at the time, actors dressed in basic black, whatever lighting is available, and a collaboration of actors providing their own props and sound effects.

An ensemble group of Magenta artists will perform in and direct the four plays. One performance only is slated for 7:30 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 20. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door as available.

The one-acts are produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. They contain adult language and situations and are not recommended for children. To learn more and purchase tickets, visit http://www.magentatheater.com/.
