Play crowds human ideals into one atom at the universe’s end
Said and Done is about everything that could happen after — wait for it — all has been said and done.
Sundown Collaborative Theatre’s latest show started with a proposal from Denton artist Kasey Tackett.
Tackett tried to suppose what might happen after the end of everything. In Said and Done, which opens Friday, ideas — and ideals — emerge in the form of characters.
Life and Death take a promenade with Faith and Science. Adam (could he be a manifestation of the first human being in Genesis?) appears, Nature gets on with its prodigal self and Time can’t be discounted.
This is Tackett’s first play, and the Denton singer and actress is making her directorial debut. She’s directed staged readings in town, and she’s worked with Sundown before, but this is her first time to take the helm of a fully produced, full-length show.
Said and Done was created with the playwright, players and director. Together, the company created a play about the characters who have a itch to be known — to be felt and understood. The universe has been destroyed, and all of the characters are still together, existing in a single atom. One thing is certain: There will be a struggle.
