Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead’s Gaping Hole (Story #3)

Mars and Wohead have created a non-linear trilogy all about radical narrative. In Gaping Hole they examine the types of things we are willing to overlook. 

Consider The Shawshank Redemption. We see Andy Dufresne, an innocent man who endures unspeakable atrocities during his time in prison, bide his time and plan his escape. It takes him years to dig his way to freedom using nothing but a rock hammer. His poster of Rita Hayworth concealing his actions. 

When the day finally arrives for Andy to crawl out of his painstakingly carved tunnel, he leaves his poster hanging perfectly on the wall to cover his escape. We are so invested in this character, so offended by the wrongs done to him and so elated when he emerges into the cleansing rain of freedom and tears off his prison uniform that we forget to ask a simple question. 

How in the world could he have replaced that poster from inside the tunnel?

Gaping Hole at the Ovalhouse Upstairs for 13 performances only!

We might be willing to let plenty of things slide, but don’t let your chance to see Gaping Hole pass you by. Book your tickets for Gaping Hole now and answer for yourself what gaping holes we are willing to overlook.
