About This Show

GuerriLA Theatre presents Signs Of The Times: An Evening of Shel’s Shorts, written by Shel Silverstein and directed by Pamela Dresser.

Among the outrageous characters in Shel’s Shorts, are a woman at an
exclusive beach resort who argues that her dog is actually her husband while the manager insists there are “No Dogs Allowed”; an existential waitress who refuses to explain her “No Skronking” sign and two men who debate the precise meaning of abandonment while deciding whether or not to enter a portal over which hangs the sign “Abandon all Hope Ye Who Enter Here.” In these mini plays Silverstein combines his sardonic sense of humor with his biting wit to show us the darker and sometimes twisted side of everyday life.

Material not appropriate for children under 15.
