There is every possibility Stefan Zeromski Theatre’s rendition of French playwright Bernard-Marie Koltès’ In the Solitude of Cotton Fields, directed by Radek Rychcik, will be the performance that causes certain aged PICA members to walk out, cause others to wrinkle noses in disdain, and a very few to loudly voice its merits. It features live music by the frenetic Natural Born Chillers, and promises to be loud. Also, the description of the performance not only describes love songs as “wolves,” it references “the swagger of a punk-rock concert.” Punk-rock swagger, loud guitar, and anthropomorphizing love songs have never really been popular at the TBA Fest (although I’m just guessing on that last one). Still, there’s another possibility: This short, loud, one-act play balanced on the fulcrum of a relationship between a Dealer of “whatever you want” and his random Client, may just be the punk-rock modern theater event of the year.
