Waiting for Alonzo
by Empty Box Theatre
Drifting aimlessly through space, Doctor Zanita waits. Surrounded by a menagerie of marvelous machines, a handsome talking statue and her faithful assistant Bielke, this mad scientist is on a mission. Waiting For Alonzo is a surreal satire brimming with bizarre behaviour and seasoned with the tears of the unrepentant patriarch.
