This whole "life" thing, it's a drag for some people. These impatient folks think, "I'm gonna die anyway. May as well get it over with and find out what comes next." That's the conceit in Jeremy Johnson's play, Breaking Out of Hell. Two guys bored with the everydayness of their lives make a pact to rip that Band-Aid off right now, but discover that the other side of life is not what they were hoping. Johnson's script won the Tin Ceiling's 2008 playwriting contest, and it's billed as a "dark comedy." Can two guys with what could charitably be described as "faulty judgment" figure out a way to cheat God, the Devil and Death? Find out at 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday (July 7 through 26) at the Tin Ceiling (3159 Cherokee Street; 314-341-0326 or Tickets are $10.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: July 17. Continues through July 26, 2009
