Have you seen "God of Carnage" ? Have you read it ? Is your Theater doing it this year ? Well, we are and this is the first time I've ever been asked to create a vomit rig for a theatrical peice. In the course of the play there are several heated exchanges..... Brief synopsis Ok, one couple is at another couples apartment. There are there to discuss the fact that one couple kid smacked the others kid in the mouth with a sizable stick and broke his two front teeth. One couple wants to know how the other couple is going to handle disciplining their son.... Ok so you can see why there is a lot of heated discussion. So, the visiting couple wife has a nervous condition, she get's upset and projectile vomits all over the place. I mean ALL over the place. and all over at least one other cast member. I can't wait to report on this further, during the run. I'm going to be interested in seeing exactly how many people in the audience start puking when she loses it on stage. During one production meeting I raised that concern. " Oh that wont happen Van!" Ok, glad I'm not on Facilities staff.......
There's a ton of interesting things in this build I'll get some pictures and post them with the designs of the rig and what my thinking was as I put the whole thing together. One thing you can say for this business; It's NEVER Dull !
