Carol Triffle, Portland’s premier absurdist playwright, has penned a darkly stirring comedy called Fallout which runs at Imago Theatre. When three characters are trapped in a fallout shelter their identities slides from doom to zany, and all perspective of life are confused. Will Jackie Ann ever find her long lost cousin? And what happened to poor Bobby anyway? Is there anyone Nadine doesn't have a crush on? Find out in this comedic, locked-room, end-of-the-world Triffle original.
“Carol Triffle is Portland’s most prominent stage absurdist, a quiet comic renegade who makes a virtue of never connecting the dots. Her theater is whimsical, outrageous … an anti-theater, almost, bopping narrative on the nose and then ducking around the corner to put on clown makeup and reappear as something utterly different, yet somehow also just the same.” – Bob Hicks, Oregon ArtsWatch
