Best Production

Acme Corporation, Play

There were a lot of great productions this year, but no one else took the insane chance that Acme Corporation took in putting on Samuel Beckett’s Play first for 12 hours straight and the following weekend for 24. But it wasn’t just the extreme-sport, endurance aspect of the play that was so winning, it was the way the company got inside Beckett’s short text and transformed it into four different plays; the way those plays changed depending on the hour and the crowd; and the way that finally, in their utter exhaustion, the repetition managed to eliminate every trace of acting and actually transform the actors.
