Corner Pocket: Wet Your Whistle for Halloween


You probably noticed the pool reference in the title of the show Corner Pocket, but this play is about way more than a friendly game of pool. The show follows strangely-named Manayunk through her whirlwind of an afterlife, in which she finds out her husband is cheating on her, her pool shark enemy is better than her, and, oh yeah, she's been murdered.

If it sounds a little strange, that's because it is. But I can't deny that I was completely entertained throughout the whole show. Brought you by Extant Arts, who debuts Andy James Hoover's New York premiere of the show, as well as the company's own fully-staged world premiere, this show touches upon basic human instincts -- jealousy, lust, love, revenge.
