I’m not sure, but Colleen Finnegan, who is producing Ben Clawson’s newest play, “Omnivores,” says it’s so shocking she’s thinking of setting up an audience cam to capture reactions.
Clawson, as you may recall, is a talented young playwright who’s spun out play after play since graduating from Montclair State two years ago. We loved “Spilling Stuff and Breaking Things,” which was set in a dim little office of a school bus company. “Omnivores” is a dark comedy set in a secluded cabin.
“The play does not take place on Thanksgiving, but it is an autumn/early winter play with certain themes of family, and a principle plot element happens to be a frozen turkey,” says Clawson.
We’re glad to see that Strange Dog regular Scott Cagney, another MSU grad, will be part of the cast.
