Presented back-to-back in one program, The Typists and The Root of Chaos reflect two distinct styles of twentieth century theatre. Schigal’s mid-century The Typists, is a bittersweet piece that follows the life cycle of two office workers through their everyday conversations about life, love and human existence.The Root of Chaos is a bizarre, acerbic black comedy, that uses absurdist theatricality to underscore its bitingly funny comments on the fate of a small-town family that has fallen victim to modern man’s mindless plundering of the earth’s riches. **The Typists and The Root of Chaos contain mature language, profanity and adult themes that some audiences may find disturbing or offensive. Please contact the Box Office for more details.
