Canned Peaches - A Tease

A new trailer for Canned Peaches in Syrup will be available in a couple of days... until then... here's a bit of info from the newest press release:

August 30, 2007…PasadenaFurious Theatre Company, who won 3 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle awards, including “Production,” “Director” and “Writing and Adaptation” for last season’s critically-acclaimed production of Craig Wright’s Grace, presents the second production of its 2007 season, the World Premiere of CANNED PEACHES IN SYRUP, written by Alex Jones (who was the playwright of Furious Theatre’s much lauded production of Noise in their inaugural season) and directed by Dámaso Rodriguez...

Alex Jones' timely and hilarious post-apocalyptic comedy, CANNED PEACHES IN SYRUP places us in a seemingly absurd and inconvenient future, where water is scarce, the sun has gone crazy and love still survives. In a post-environmental apocalyptic future, the world is divided into two tribes of nomadic humans: Cannibals and Vegetarians. Can star-crossed lovers Rog (think Romeo as a cannibal) and Julie (think Juliet as a vegetarian) cross tribal lines?! Can Rog's taste for flesh be suppressed?! Can Julie deny her parents' "meat is murder" mantra?! And, who exactly is Blind Bastard? A lone can of peaches in syrup holds their fate...and the fate of all mankind...

British writer Jones, will be traveling to the US for the premiere of Canned Peaches in Syrup and will be in Pasadena for the first time since Furious opened Noise (Critic’s Choice, LA Times; Recommend, LA Weekly; Critic’s Pick, Backstage) in 2002. During his visit from September 29-October 8, Alex will attend rehearsals prior to, and participate in post-show discussions during opening weekend...

Be Furious.
