Keith is a long-time socially awkward introvert and he has found the perfect way to deal with his crippling anxiety: Killing people. In his mind, anyway. Developed last year in the Bloomington Playwrights Project's BloomingPlays series, How To Kill is an instructional and entertaining way to deal with the complexities of life.
Socially awkward introverts like me love shows about socially awkward introverts. In this one, Keith muddles through life by “killing” everyone he meets in his imagination only. Developed in the Bloomington Playwrights Project’s “BloomingPlays” series, Gabe Golden’s How to Kill successfully stretches what is basically a skit idea into an hour of entertaining theater. Keith (Ryan Powell) is a schlep worth rooting for; his high school buddy Rob (Zack Joyce) is the kind of jerk you would sleep with against your better judgment; and the girl (Carrie Morgan) they both like is just as twisted as they are. - Josefa Beyer
