The “Theatre of the Absurd” came to Cortez last week, with a couple of one-act plays at the Sunflower Theatre.
The two plays were performed jointly Oct. 11-13.
One was Edward Albee’s “The Zoo Story,” which, according to the Sunflower Theatre’s Facebook page, “explores themes of isolation, loneliness, miscommunication as anathematization, social disparity and dehumanization in a materialistic world.”
The other was Ryan Bultrowicz’s “Three Women and an Onion,” a comedy in which three women try to uncover the motives of an onion that keeps appearing on their kitchen table.
“The Zoo Story” was directed by Desiree Henderson and featured actors Mark Lawrence and Garrett Riggs.
Alexandra York directed “Three Women and an Onion” with a cast of Elizabeth Dickey, Sophia Dickey, Deborah Hardy-Feltman and Terri Helm.
