As Pie Man Theatre Company (PMTC) wraps up its 2017-18 season, it’s focus turns to the “new” aspect of its two-fold mission of presenting classic plays and new works of theatre art. HARRY JAMESON is the brainchild of local playwright and doctor Hal Cohen. It is a play that tackles the abuse of power over the extremely vulnerable. Hal employs theatre of the absurd to bring to light the very serious subject of child abuse. He manages to fathom the depths of the brackish water of this play and find for some a way out of danger… and for others, a kind of justice they never imagined receiving.
HARRY JAMESON begins with a dream: a nightmare of memories shallowly buried in the title character’s own fragile mind. Harry’s interest is piqued as he witnesses two local gentleman, Edward and Neville, discuss the very same perpetrator that Harry encountered in his youth. Their plan rekindles in Harry his desire for what some may call revenge, and others, justice. As Edward and Neville’s plan is put in motion with help from the local “butcher” Charles and his mysterious “assistant” Alice, things become quite complicated. Charles is a man who gets things done – the kind of things that are generally frowned upon in polite society. When Edward balks at the unique form of payment required by Charles, Harry then steps in with some unique help of his own… with surreal (but in the end, somehow logical) results.
