The cast of Subject to Change fires their air rifles.

On September 10, 2001, the staff of Abandon Productions began rehearsals on a light piece of theater they hoped to premiere that fall. On September 11, they realized their community needed a different kind of statement. Quickly shifting gears in response to the tragedy, they created Subject to Change (America: Revolution to Revelation). The theater piece spans American history from the Revolutionary War to the fall of the twin towers using only movement and a cappella vocals. Subject to Change, which received the highest rating from the Sacramento News & Review during its debut run last year, is being reprised for four performances in honor of the anniversary of 9/11. As SN&R reviewer Matthew Burlingame-Couk promised in his review of the production, attendees “are in for not only a genuinely unique experience, but one that will leave them changed forever.” For those who want to honor America’s loss, but find that corporate-sponsored displays of patriotism leave them cold, this play might be just the ticket. Subject to Change plays at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Tickets are $15. The Space, 2509 R St. Call 737-2304 for more information or reservations.
