Carport Theater

Community Theater Event: "The Idea of Beauty"

In a series of short skits combining metaphysical, poetic and comic elements, eighteen characters explore the idea of beauty: does it exist as on objective standard? Can it be reduced to a formula? Is there a cost to beauty, and is it worth paying? These questions are examined in one skit showing the attempt to create a "perfect" woman, while in another they take the form of a beauty contest between men embodying the fashions of different eras.

The Idea of Beauty is the fifth play to be presented at the Carport Theater, and like last year's show Stillness and Movement, it boldly tackles major issues about meaning and happiness in this world. It also shares in the magical/humorous qualities of the previous three Carport productions--Voyage to Venus (2014), Dream Stories (2013) and The Jumblies (2012).
