Big Idea Theatre continues its popular Unbound 2014 season Friday, Sept. 12, with the opening of “Exit Interview” by William Missouri Downs.

Dick Fig has been fired. On his last day at his university Dick’s excruciating exit interview with Eunice, a humorless HR representative, is interrupted by an unexpected and violent incident. Downs’ witty play bounces from Brechtian interludes to a pair of politically radicalized cheerleaders, from a pompous newsman to dispatches from God, and includes debates on religion, science and politics before reaching its startling conclusion.

“All together, the elements Downs brings together in ‘Exit Interview’ make for one of the more intriguing theater experiences you’re likely to have, and you’ll laugh throughout while you’re left pondering several big issues.” — SLcene.com

This production is directed by Gail Donner and features actors Jouni Kirjola, Tara Henry, Amber Lucito-Marsh, Kaley Saari, Lizzy Poore, Jordan Mata, Shelley Russell Riley, Earl Victorine, Garrett Bank, Cameron Rose and Rebecca Scott.

Showtimes for “Exit Interview” are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 12 through Oct. 11, at Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento. Tickets are $16 online/$20 door general admission; $10 on Thrifty Thursdays. Groups (10 or more) pay $10 per ticket (reservations encouraged).
