Mother sends him to get bread from a neighbor. The Great Halloo is heard; nothing but sand. “Push the bolt to:” a minor repair. brings all this to Goat Island’s 8th performance, When Will The September Roses Bloom? Last night was only a comedy (2004). Drawing from the margins of Matthew Goulish’s journal, archived props, and primary sources used by the company in their devising process,* a minor repair. shares in the humble but creative force of returning time, passed. An imagined prop comes home.

Admission: Free.
