On February 25th to 27th, 2019, Nickel & Dime, the student run theatre company at the University of Calgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts, produced “Like Tom Cruise Loves Running” by Mike Czuba, and they did a fantastic job. There was much laughter and so much running.
An immediate, physical, Meta-Theatrical, one-act play, with 3 people, 3 chairs, much running and a struggle to answer the question: “How do you love?” Three people, actors, characters meet in a space that looks similar to a theatre stage. Grand statements are made, running on the spot, arguing, debates, agreements and declarations power this play from start to stop with a rhythm and pace that will leave everyone out of breath.
