Line

When: Jan. 30-31, 8 p.m. 2015

You would think waiting in line would be the simplest thing there is, yet a Google search of the phrase returns 246 million results, many of them discussing things like queue theory, the science of waiting in line. A 2012 piece from The New York Times says people overestimate how long they've been in line by roughly 36 percent — that, on top of the 37 billion hours that actually are spent in line by Americans every year. Line, a one-act, longtime off-Broadway absurdist play by Israel Horovitz, takes this to a logical extreme by putting five people in line and turning them loose on each other.
