Life Insurance motorcyclistThree rapidly-shifting monologues weave together disparate viewpoints and unexpected revelations: an overeager volunteer firefighter believes a fatal motorcycle crash on a rural Virginia road guides his own destiny…a bitter standardized test instructor explains why he didn’t stop…a cynical life insurance salesman has a moment of clarity in a run-down kitchen.

In Life Insurance, Joel Jones uses simple, subtle physical and vocal changes to portray three idiosyncratic characters. Each character casts a different light on the central, precipitating event: a fatal motorcycle crash on a rural Virginia road. The consequences are unpredictable, funny, and ultimately satisfying, as each character finds a way to move onward from a life stalled in its tracks.

Admission by donation, proceeds towards Fringe expenses. The Hamner Theater is taking Life Insurance to the Fringe: to the Capital Fringe July 12 – 24 and to the NYC Fringe August 12 – 28. These shows will help cover the costs.
