Counter is a new, original production written and directed by Maggie N. Razavi starring Maia Prest and Jon Gutierrez.
“While some things are better left unsaid, some things should never be left unspoken.”
A long term relationship has reached its breaking point, one party is seemingly all in while the other party toys with the idea of starting a whole new life. After some time apart the couple meet in a bar to decide the road ahead.
Counter is a play with interactive elements where the audience is invited to participate in the dialogue and decision making of the characters. While they struggle to communicate with each other, the audience gets a glimpse into the demise of the relationship through powerful monologues.
The characters will ask themselves the questions they are too afraid to ask their partner – prompting the audience for answers.
Run time: 60 minutes, no interval.
The show contains strong language, references to mental health issues, alcoholism and eating disorders, and is suitable for an audience aged 16 and up.
