The Fun in Dysfunction

The Ochre House earned the "Best Place To See A Weird Play" distinction in our 2009 Best of DallasTM(r)(c) awards, and it doesn't look like Matthew Posey's theater is giving up its hold on that claim any time soon. The current production, written and directed by Posey, concerns the dysfunctional Bonner family, whose summer vacation at their beach house in Maine turns into a maelstrom of exposed secrets, emotional blackmail and manipulation. Other than the beach house -- who could afford that these days? -- sounds pretty normal so far. But add live music, dance, video performance, Mom's morphine addiction and a man-eating puppet and that award starts to make sense again. Morphing wraps up its run this week with performances at 8:15 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at The Ochre House, 825 Exposition Ave. Admission is $15, but bring cash or your checkbook. Call 214-826-6273 or visit
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: Aug. 27. Continues through Sept. 17, 2011
