The Typographer’s Dream
It’s the ultimate career day gone astray as a typographer, a geographer and a stenographer end up revealing far more about themselves than about their work. Under Capital Stage founder Stephanie Gularte’s precise direction, The Typographer’s Dream is tightly paced and perfectly timed. Dave (Peter Mohrmann), a self-conscious stenographer, is joined by Annalise (Saffron Henke), a hyperactive geographer and Margaret (Gail Dartez), a sensitive typographer, for a discussion of the intersection of job and self, not to mention self-deception.
Capital Stage, 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 7 p.m. Saturdays, 2 p.m. matinee on Sundays; $22-$26. Delta King Theatre, 1000 Front Street; (916) 379-5051; www.capstage.org. Through August 17.
