TCA presents THE GIANT DESK PLAYS

TCA presents THE GIANT DESK PLAYS
May 31, 2018 7:00 PM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium

 

TCA Presents is doing something new and exciting! Staff at the TCA and community theater members are producing The Giant Desk Plays by our local playwright Ned Dougherty. Starring Gina Gargone, William Hall, Wilfred McGuire and Susan Nuss, the production is a series of 7 vignettes staged around a big desk, a symbol that holds different meanings in each of the acts. The actors weave in and out of each of the seven scenes, taking on fifteen characters across a variety of desk-related existential prepositions. The Giant Desk is everything. The Giant Desk is nothing. The production is both profound and entertaining.

 

As with any live production it takes a village. Below is the list of village members:
