For it's contribution to Theatre on Fire's Cabinet of Curiosities, Exiled Theatre brings a staged reading of company co-founder, James Wilkinson's new play: Nurse Play.
Tucked away in a dark room at the back of a boarding house in the middle of nowhere, Nurse sits. She spends her day drumming her fingers on the table in front of her and playing the stack of Blondie records she keeps by her feet. Her eyes were gouged out years ago, but no matter. They were getting in the way anyhow. In the bed by her chair is the patient she is charged with taking care of, Joe. Joe has been diagnosed with a degenerative disease that keeps him bed bound, in the dark, and doped up. He also appears to be missing several limbs. The two have been alone together for quite a while. Then one day Joe disappears and things take a bit of a strange turn...
ONE NIGHT ONLY - Wednesday, May 10th at 7:30pm
Charlestown Working Theatre: 442 Bunker Hill Street, Charlestown, MA 02129
