If you were looking for Matthew Posey when he lived in Los Angeles, you'd need look no further than the local watering hole. Every night, he'd sit around with “a bunch of drunks making their own religion.” Those experiences, drinking with the likes of Amanda Plummer or Jeff Goldblum, were the launching pad for his newest play, Christhelmet, which opens at the Ochre House Theater (825 Exposition Ave.) at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. The show explores the mind of an alcoholic, as he whiles away the hours at a bar where he can create his own realities, if only for the evenings. If previous shows at the Ochre House are an indicator, this show will be filled with zany music, magic and maybe a puppet or two. Try on Christhelmet for just $15 through July 26.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: July 9. Continues through July 26, 2014
