Our story this week: Pat Baer, creeped out by an awkward drug party around an unfamiliar campfire, escapes into the forest along with the beautiful, straight-edge subject of his unspoken desire. But if there’s one thing that history teaches us, it’s this: journeys into dark forests produce narrative crisis points via confrontation with representations of the bestial self. Should have seen this one coming, Pat.
Pat Baer is an improvisor and all around great guy who has helped with the production of A Funny Thing since its very beginning. Thanks Pat! He also hosts 404ing it: Breaking Down the Internet, a surprisingly moving love song to all things online at the UCBeast theater. It is a great show, and if you like the internet (you do) then you should check it out.
