LG! Theater presents Quickies Volume 17: Lost and Found, a meticulously collected set of short plays, carefully arranged into a evening of cabinet curiosities. Can what is lost ever be found? Can what is hidden be brought into the light? Our playwrights rummaged through mind-museums and discovered a treasury of unique objects: an electromagnetic disruptor, a fuzzy puff of kitten fur, a worn leather pouch of pipe tobacco. Quickies 17 unearths seven new plays by four local and three national female-identifying playwrights. These seven short plays are a surprising showcase of the hilarious, the spooky, and the bittersweet. Come get lost in these hauntingly original new stories and find a curious crowd of characters to connect to including: a charismatic cooking show host, a troubled ghost hunter, a sensual chair thief and a pair of exhausted mountaineers.
