Fringe in Sketch: HOME (Geoff Sobelle)

This play is a farce on every type home you can think of, and what I can remember are the Vikings, Ching Valdes-Aran dancing on the table, the police showed up, the whole audience half a surprise party with lantern lights above their heads, and the grim reaper Death himself.

This Home is has a life of its own. Decorations, storage, and moth balls have a place here. Geoff Sobelle’s HOME is a factory of conventional love and discreet fights. Our personal space is our own, and the set is like a doll house.

Ching Valdes Aran in the bed room, Ching Valdes Arab peeling fruit in the dining room. Jennifer Kidwell and Sophie Bortolussi get ready for tennis or a night out on the town. Geoff Sobelle is well Geoff Sobelle (surfs up)

Sophie Bortolussi in the kitchen with a house fan. I guess she can’t sleep either, thought bubble from Geoff Sobelle, while chowing down some delivery Chinese food.

Workers mime the building of the bathroom. They put together the cabinets in the kitchen and set the table for a home for dysfunctional human beings.
