The Happy Hour Theatre will be bringing its inaugural production, “The Self-Unseeing,” to The Palms Playhouse on Sunday, April 14. The show will consist of five short plays that examine the challenges of self-identity. The Happy Hour Theatre is Yolo County’s newest theater company, founded by area natives Shenandoah Kehoe and Christi van Eyken. The company is excited to bring more local theatre to the region and connect with the community through their love of the performing arts. Audiences are invited to experience a one hour show of five modern explorations of what makes us who we are. The characters in these plays search for themselves, hide from themselves and come face to face with uncomfortable truths about themselves. Through the prism of pressing contemporary issues such as Islamophobia, domestic violence and the value of art itself, these plays use a mixture of comedy, drama and even surrealism to scrutinize identity in the modern world. Each play is helmed by a different up-and-coming director, including Winters native Andrew Fridae. An ensemble of talented local performers have come together to bring the plays to life, united by the desire to make theatre that challenges performers and audiences alike. The Happy Hour Theatre will perform “The Self-Unseeing” twice on Sunday, April 14, with a 2 p.m. matinee to be followed by a 7 p.m. evening show. Tickets are $12 at the door, and may also be purchased in advance at ]]>
