Fringe Productions: Droppin' Johns 

Wednesday-Saturday, Feb. 21-24

On Jan. 12, The Gem Center for the Arts opened its doors in Boise, offering classes, workshops and studio space to local artists. One group that took the nonprofit up on its offer was Fringe, a new theatrical production company that debuted its first show there on Valentine's Day. Droppin' Johns by Ilana Lydia follows CatGirl (Zoe Kelly), a woman "trapped in her own mind, where her self-perceived heroism allows her to incapacitate the Johns who visit her." Much of the dialogue is written by the actor, who, as Lydia puts it, "shapes the content based on her own life experiences," so each performance is unique. These unusual choices may become the trademark for Fringe, which aims to "facilitate the voices of the disenfranchised and to secure a place in [the] community for their stories."
