Space 55: Tangelico/Cube Press Release


 PHOENIX – January 27, 2010 An online collaboration between two playwrights – one in Canada and the other in Arizona – hits the stage next month as Space 55 Theatre Ensemble presents the world premiere of the paired one-act plays, Tangelico, by Sterling Lynch of Ottawa, Ontario, and A Cube With A View, by Mare Biddle of Phoenix.

"Sterling and I followed each other on Twitter as fellow playwrights. From there we read each other's blogs, started emailing and then worked on each other's material," Biddle said. "Social media fostered our connection and collaboration. Without Twitter, this double feature at Space 55 would never have been created."

A Cube With A View, an edgy comedy about a lopsided love triangle and cats, was written as a companion piece to Tangelico, a farce about the creative process, friendship and memory. Biddle’s one-act, which was developed through Space 55's Writers Forum, serves as another outstanding example of Space 55's dedication to cultivating original, cutting-edge theatre locally.

The Tangelico/A Cube With A View
double feature will be presented February 11-27, 2010, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15.00. The paired one-acts will be presented back-to-back with a 15-minute intermission. Running time, including intermission, is approximately two hours.

A live/online Q&A with both playwrights will be held immediately following the closing night performance on February 27th. Lynch and Biddle will respond to questions from the live audience as well as queries submitted via Twitter.

Directed by Bob Fisher, Tangelico
