Seller Door

Card Table Theatre Seller Door
8pm | tickets $10

A play about a barker, the people he gets to go through a door, and what happens to those people once they go through. A careful and crafted blend of sharp, concise movement with a strong focus on the precision of words, Seller Door carries a quick wit and dark humor, coming from a specific focus on pace and rhythm. The play is written and directed by local playwright, Larry Mitchell. Mitchell is a teaching artist at the Lawrence Arts Center, where his plays American Bear, The Tin Woodsman, and The Patchwork Girl of Oz were first produced.
