Episode 170! Donna and Wes Scott of donna scott productions join us to talk about their latest show, Eat the Runt, and the amazing intricacies of putting a show of this crazy premise together, rehearsing it, and bringing it to life. It’s just amazing – please tune in!
About Eat the Runt
donna scott productions, the Harvey B. Gantt Center and Charlotte Art League come together for Eat The Runt, a comedy by Avery Crozier. Providing a completely novel and participatory theatre experience for Charlotte audiences, Eat the Runt requires that all eight actors in the cast learn every role and audition for the audience before each performance. The audience will cast the show using their smartphones and watch as the actors they cast deftly play out one of the over 40,000 possible casting combinations.
The plot of Eat the Runt follows Merritt, a grants manager candidate, through a series of increasingly bizarre interviews for a position at an esteemed art museum. Eat the Runt focuses a sharply comedic eye on the themes of political correctness, office politics, sexual harassment, religious persuasions, and societal and cultural norms related to gender and race. The result is a unique, hilarious and sometimes surprising performance that will never be the same show twice.
***Performance suggested for 18+ due to language and adult comedy.
