LSU Theatre & Andy Jordan Productions present

PETROL and NEURONS

Two new online plays

by Vince LiCata

Directed and Produced

by Andy Jordan
May 1st 1:30pm livestream

Recording available till May 16

Two short humorous plays about Love, Oil, Money and Neurobiology.

Especially written for performance online starring actors from the Master of Fine Arts program at the Louisiana State University School of Theatre.

THE LILLY POD wonders if you can really buy your own oil rig, and why you would want to.

 The LAB MEETING is about the pursuit of science and sex, and asks if neurobiology can derail love in the lab.

Praise for the author’s and director’s 2020 ONCOMM award winning online play, SpaceXPat:

‘Powerful use of Zoom as a structural device, not a poor substitute for live performance.’

‘Totally gripping, beautifully cast, wonderfully performed drama.’ Audience comments

Keeps us on the edge of our seats.’ G Scene Magazine

‘Comparable to live theatre… a high-concept storyline and high emotion.’ Broadway Baby

Saturday May 1st, 1:30pm livestream performance

Recording of the livestream performance will be available until May 16

Vince LiCata’s science-based plays have been produced across the US and abroad, and have focused on HIV drug development, ageing research, graduate student-mentor conflicts, science activism, autism, climate change, petroleum, research ethics enforcement, the structure of DNA, and cloning.

Writer Vince LiCata says Writing theatre for Zoom presents new questions and opportunities. It’s not video, it’s not on stage, it’s really something in-between. For me, it inspires new stories and new points of view on classic stories. These plays are two of the imagined Zoom meetings I secretly spied on.”

Andy Jordan’s productions include Insufficiency and Ego at ZSpace Theatre, San Francisco, and new play The Inn at Lydda at Shakespeare’s Globe. Andy Jordan Productions has produced over fifty shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on tour, and in London, most recently COPS at the Southwark Playhouse.

Director Andy Jordan says I’m delighted to be directing these two online plays for the Brighton Fringe. The writing is fun, clever and incisive. The characters are really well drawn and there is a great blend of ideas and dramatic intrigue. I also like the fact they are both set in the world of video communication.”
