Next Iteration Theater Company presents Turquoise, three plays in one, by Obie Award-winning playwright Deb Margolin and directed by Dianne K. Webb. With themes of memory, love, symbiosis, and mortality, this award-winning playwright has woven a story that reflects on the simultaneity of everything while capturing the hearts and minds of the audience with simplicity and hilarious, quick-volleying dialogue.  Turquoise is a theatrical hybrid of literary proportions not to be missed.

After the opening scene, Margolin introduces the audience to the “Guy with Nothing” - a character reminiscent of Shakespeare, Miller, and Marlowe but utilizing modern lingo delivered by a combative-spirited specter, an everyman. The story follows three couples: an aging married pair coping with old memories and the loss of them, two teenage boys just developing their memories and learning to bear them, and a pianist with a seven-second memory who dances with, meets, then repeatedly loses his cohort again and again. Margolin, with scenes that resonate a “Who’s on First?” comedy sketch feel, entertains as she interlaces undertones of poetry and philosophy to create a show that will be savored and relished.
