While “mnemonic” is one of the hardest words to pronounce phonetically (muh-neh-mon-ik? Like what?); it is also one of most helpful. Believe it or not, you use mnemonic devices to remember the order of the planets, the cardinal directions, or maybe even your address. That idea of remembrance is central to the upcoming play at the Red Tape Theatre, aptly titled Mnemonic, which premiers Friday, September 5!
Epic in scale, Mnemonic attempts to weave together seemingly disparate stories about the search for a lost father, an ancient, frozen caveman, and the attempt to rekindle a lost love. By stretching across time, space, climate, and people, Mnemonic seeks to answer how “we remember, what we remember, [and] why we remember.” And maybe, just maybe, if the breadcrumb trail left by our ancestors is followed, we could learn more about ourselves than we imagined. Featuring a long list of local and nationally renowned actors, Mnemonic proves to be an incredible production. That is, if you can remember to see it.
Mnemonic will run from September 2 through October 5 at the Red Tape Theatre. All performances will begin at 7:30 PM, except Sunday shows that will begin at 2 PM. Ticket prices range from $5 - 15.
