MLC Forum Presents: Off the Beaten Path
Featuring 4 A.M. by Jonathan Dorf and Oz by Don Zolidis

You may think this pair of one-act plays will present a familiar situation, but each introduces an unusual and unexpected perspective that takes you off the beaten path. Jonathan Dorf’s 4 A.M. asks an intriguing question: what is it like to be awake when the rest of your world is asleep? Meet an early-morning jogger, a radio DJ whose show may have an audience of none, a modern Romeo and Juliet, the author of a most unusual letter, and many other teen characters as they search for connection in the magic hour, as told through a series of connected scenes and monologues. In Oz by Don Zolidis, Beth is reeling from her sister’s death and suddenly finds herself journeying through a world suspiciously resembling the film The Wizard of Oz. But with the yellow brick road sold to foreign investors after a financial meltdown, the Scarecrow reveling in his ignorant bliss, the Cowardly Lion acting like a paranoid sociopath, and the Tin Man embracing his emotional numbness, Beth wonders what role she plays in this classic story gone awry.

Tickets are $5 for all attendees and will be sold at the door only. Visit mlc-wels.edu/forum for more information.
