Sam wants to tell you about five encounters he had on a site called Craigslist
Sam is anxious about the way he gets to know people. About the way he self-sabotages his attempts to communicate and reach out to those around him.
Sam wants this to be a chance for you to get to know him.
5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist is a new solo show performed by one person. One person who needs an audience to tell his story. It’s a show that, in exploring one person’s self-sabotaged attempts to know those around him, considers the extent to which a group of people in a darkened room can ever get to know each other.
Desperately hilarious and achingly bleak, 5 Encounters on a site called Craigslist is an intricate and tender question mark around our attempts to encounter each other in a technologized world.
