A black stage. A thick, white rope, sinuous and shining. A tall pole. A bright orange rubber ball.
Black, white, orange. The stage lights are so bright that when the ball bounces, it casts a shadow sharp enough to cut paper. Up, down. Light, dark. Three men try to leave the stage and seemingly can't. On, off.
Lost & Clown'd will be performed through Saturday at Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. Tickets are $10-$16. Call 410-752-8558 or go to theatreproject.org.
