Circumference

An injury to the brain is nothing to laugh at unless, you know, you find a way to make it funny. Interact Center's Broken Brain Summit is inspired by true stories of performers in the show who have experienced brain trauma, and if you're familiar with the center's performances, you know how they embrace and examine disability with wit and profound humor. Amy Salloway writes the show, and if you're familiar with her frank and witty monologues, you'll pony up the dough and stick around for Circumference. First seen at last year's Fringe, Salloway's one-woman show ponders gastric-bypass surgery, the horrors of gym classes past, and an on-again, off-again relationship with her body. Salloway has a gift for detail, a technician's skill with words, and a dead-on instinct for finding humor where others might mine only darkness.
Fridays, Saturdays, 9:30 p.m. Starts: April 4. Continues through April 12, 2008
