The Midwest Premiere of ARMLESS by Kyle Jarrow

Performances February 17-March 12

Thursday-Saturday

First rehearsal- January 10

 

Armless is a dark comedy centering on John, a 30 year-old married man with his limbs fully intact. Tortured all his life by the crushing feeling he is physically not as he should be, John seeks the help of a doctor he learned about on a chat room to transform his body. Meanwhile, his wife desperately tries to come to grips with his condition and prevent him from going through with a procedure that would leave his body altered forever.

Kyle Jarrow is a writer and musician based in New York City. He writes for the stage as well as film and television, and he plays in the bands Super Mirage and (now on hiatus) The Fabulous Entourage. He won the prestigious OBIE Award at age 24 for his Off-Broadway hit A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant, which has subsequently been produced all over the country.

Characters

John – 30. On the surface – a clean-cut, happily married man. But he masks a dark secret – that he is tormented by a feeling that his body is not as it should be. Finally owning up to the compulsion he has lived with since he was a child, he is determined to make his transformation a reality.

Anna – 27 – 30. Devoted and caring, but neurotic, wife. Constantly filled with the anxiety that something awful is going to happen, she is put to the test when her husband goes missing.

 Dr. Phillips – 35 – 45. An accomplished nasal reconstruction cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Phillips impotently attempts to break the tedium of his daily life through prescription medication and entertaining the peculiar idea of a new patient.

Jenny – 20 – 25. Dr. Phillips’ attractive, young receptionist, who is wise beyond her years and has little patience for emotional bullshit.

What to Prepare
A 1-minute serio-comic monologue. Additionally, you may be asked to read from sides.
