CollectiveP.A.S.T. @ chashama presents nationally acclaimed theater company The Management as it unveil its new dark comedy The Chalk Boy, written and directed by Joshua Conkel.
The Chalk Boy is a deathly black comedy about measuring your own worth by comparing it to everyone else's. Sparks fly when four teenage girls in small town Washington begin to obsess over the mysterious disappearance of the most popular boy in school. Witchcraft, murder, and shopping ensue as the girls draw a ghostly picture of American culture and its values. The cast features Mallery Avidon, Mary Catherine Donnelly, Jennifer Harder, and Courtney Sale.
The Chalk Boy will play the following performance schedule:
July 18-July 29, 2007
Wednesdays - Sundays at 8:30 p.m.

The Management was formed in 2004 as part of New York's UnConvention Festival. Its first production was the Brecht-inspired This Jungle of Cities penned by founding member Berrian Eno-Van Fleet. The Management is known for stark, stylized, critical exposés on American culture. In 2005 the company enjoyed an 8-month residency at Victory Hall in Jersey City where it produced the East Coast premiere of Naomi Izuka's Aloha Say the Pretty Girls and Thornton Wilder's The Long Christmas Dinner. Last summer it took part in the inaugural Capital Fringe Festival in Washington D.C. with the grotesquely humorous, existential play Self-Obsession in Blue.
Also, I just received pictures of the set designer's model. Awesome:
