An Oak Tree

By Tim Crouch

Two Actors. One has rehearsed the play. The second has never even read it.  Performed by a different person each night, the second actor will discover the play and their role at the same time as you do.

In this Midwest Premiere by Tim Crouch, An Oak Tree asks, how do we transform our world in order to survive our pain? How do we create our own reality? Anything can happen in this play that illuminates the magic of theater – a cheap trick and a genuine spell all at once.


The FIRST ACTOR or HYPNOTIST is being played by Gage Wallace. The SECOND ACTOR will be played by a different actor at every show.
