Filling the House @ The Pico Playhouse for “A Giant Void in my Soul”

How to fill a void in one’s soul has been the existential question of the universe forever.  Playwright Bernard Cubria tackles this conundrum head on in a brilliant, artistic exploration between Fool 1 (Karla Mosley) and Fool 2 (Kim Hamilton), together on a mission in the Ammunition Theatre Company’s  “A Giant Void in my Soul.”   Through a series of colorful vignettes, the Fools and an assortment of other characters (bartender, thinker, co-workers, parents) set out to solve this philosophical question in a most enlightening manner, with costumes and physical humor ala cirque de Soleil.  The sketches depict how possibly food or drink abundant can fill a void, or perhaps a new baby onboard is the ultimate answer. The play is full of witty dialogue, poetic exchanges; the plot is consumed with each of these characters searching for wholeness. It covers much ground and is quite apropos for those here in Los Angeles, the land of the lonely hearts and soul seekers.  Not until show’s end is the dilemma fully figured out…leaving the audience searching for even more! This show is an amazing, amusing journey, and just another perfect example of the gems produced by this production company.
