Fighting the temptations of the single life will finally be put to rest when Sheila, an un-happily married woman fulfills her strong desire to be alone and part with Nathan, her loving husband of thirteen years. Through-out Sheila’s pursuit for freedom she realizes that her marital issues aren’t half the drama that she has made it out to be after being exposed to the other couples deeper troubles!!

Tunnel Vision at Venus Theatre, May 11-June 4
By Andrea Lepcio
May 11 – June 4, 2017
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm.
Location: Venus Theatre.
A multi-layered celebration of the Feminine, TUNNEL VISION is ultimately a journey of acceptance and redemption, played out in a non-traditional theatre space from which truth, purpose and love unexpectedly emerge. Key to the action is the live construction of a sculptural art installation. Two female characters enter an unidentified space. It is unfamiliar to them and they are unfamiliar with each other. Unsure how they got here, they quickly find themselves “stuck” in this liminal space. The two struggle to maintain their composure –anything to avoid confronting the circumstances that lie beneath their arrival at this “place” or admit their burgeoning attraction to each other. The play considers many of the daily challenges women face as well as those issues that are, typically, solely female: the struggle to balance motherhood with the desire to have a career, the stigma that comes with not choosing the traditional path assigned our gender, the hypercritical judgment we place on ourselves in comparison to our female peers, the difficulty we find in truly loving ourselves, and the fear that sometimes comes in loving each other. TUNNEL VISION is ultimately a journey of acceptance and redemption, from which truth, purpose and love unexpectedly emerge.
Tickets are $40 or $20 for Friend of Venus. Buy tickets here.
