Majestic Madness. Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd St. 7:30 p.m. Cost: $5. Majestic Madness is a quarterly community building and entertainment event designed to inspire folks to jump into writing and acting for theater. How? Well, we beg local writers (or want-to-be writers) to pen short 8 to 10 page sketches around a prompt. They send their plays to the folks here at the Majestic the day before and we print off a copy for each character in the show. The night of the show, writer, actors, and patrons show up at the theater at the appointed time and our host jumps up on stage, explains the rules, and then randomly selects the first sketch of the evening. They then ask audience members to fill all the parts in the show by reading off the character descriptions and asking for volunteers, who jump up on stage. Then, they do the play.

While posing for his book jacket cover, Dan meets Anna, a photographer. He pursues her, but she rejects his advances despite their mutual attraction. Larry, a dermatologist, “meets” Dan in an Internet chat room. Dan, obsessing over Anna, pretends to be her and has cybersex with Larry. They arrange to meet the next day at an aquarium. Larry arrives and so too, coincidentally, does the real Anna. This sets up a series of pass-the-lover scenes in which this quartet struggle to find intimacy but can’t seem to get closer.

Bonnie Bucknam and Linda McLaughlin – Contemporary Art Quilts. The Arts Center, 700 SW Madison Ave. Tuesday through Saturday: 12 – 5 p.m. Runs through Oct. 3. Brown Bag Art Talk on Aug. 27 from 12 – 1 p.m. Reception on Aug. 27 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. The bi-annual Quilt County event is an opportunity for the Arts Center to show two artists working with fiber. Bonnie Bucknam and Linda McLaughlin both create art quilts, but with very different results. Their work contrasts in use of color, shape, and inspiration. Bucknam (from Vancouver, Washington) originally studied archaeology and geology. Working on digs took her to France, New Mexico, and finally Alaska, where she lived for 31 years. Next to her interest in those fields, she has made quilts since she was in high school. Over time her work changed from traditional patterns to abstracts which reflect her love of landscape and geology. McLaughlin (from Weiser, Idaho) has found her inspiration in meditation. A quote that resonates with her is from Chuang Tzu: “At the still point in the center of the circle, one can see the infinite in all things.” McLaughlin feels that when she is still and present, listening to what her center tells her, the ideas for her work start to bubble up. For info, visit www.theartscenter.net.
