My short script CAN I? was produced recently in the Asphalt Jungle Shorts Festival in Kitchener, Ontario. This is a site-specific walking-tour festival, where patrons buy a ticket and then are escorted as a group around downtown Kitchener and, at various spots, live theatre breaks out.
CAN I? is set in a restaurant between a surly waitress and a sheepish customer. He asks “can I have . . .” a certain menu item, and the waitress lectures him on his grammar.
