The Missoula Oblongata Presents: The Daughter of the Father of Time Motion Study @ the Annex Theater
The Missoula Oblongata Presents: The Daughter of the Father of Time Motion Study at the Annex Theater
Thursday, June 3, 2010
8:00pm - 10:00pm
The Annex Theater
Once there was a time when people knew the difference between sacrifice and compromise. Which is to say, they knew the difference between a walrus and a robot. Which is to say, they knew the difference between a hole in the ice and the ice itself. They knew each of the 18 hand movements prescribed by Time Motion Study, and they knew how to use them in a way that was restful. This play is a television mini-series about that remarkable period of time.
As always, The Missoula Oblongata is asking the big questions here: Can inefficiency be cured? If a robot is smarmy, is it only a reflection of your own smarminess? What exactly does it take to get oneself on a postage stamp?
