Minnesota Fringe Festival: There is no escape
|Loans from on high: "St. Christopher of Financial Aid" at the Fringe|
But after about ten seconds of conversation I solidified the information that both Kehoe and Hakima have one-man shows at this year's Fringe. Hakima's is called Can Michael Come Out and Play?; it's about cultural assumptions, miscommunication, and the lovely experience of being suspected of terrorism.
Kehoe's show is called St. Christopher of Financial Aid. It's puroprted to be a story of human connection arising from the allocation of money for higher education. St. Christopher plays at Theatre in the Round (opening night is this Friday at 10:00 p.m.). Michael is at the Playwrights' Center. The opener is Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
