Subject Matter Created and Destroyed and I’m in a Small Space for a Reason I Don’t Understand Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 13 2010

As a performer, Matt Test has been a big asset to this year’s RhinoFest. His crazed petulance and Eraserhead ’do play off well against Kate Teichman’s sly, sleepy deadpan in Chris Bower’s Notes to Molly, and he and Teichman make a modified version of the same dynamic work nicely in Subject Matter Created and Destroyed—Matt Rieger’s brief, amusing contribution to this double bill, in which Teichman’s character tells how she wrote and trashed her magnum opus. But Test’s playwrighting is another matter. Designed to defeat audience expectations, his ostentatiously idiosyncratic "historical reenactment" of fictitious events I Am in a Small Space for a Reason I Don’t Understand simply ended up trying my patience instead. —Tony Adler
