Never before has the Alphabet Theatre undertaken so difficult and, in some respects, nasty a play as this. With great personal sacrifice, the Caslon players bring to the stage, for the first time anywhere, "The Z Was Zapped."Playwright Chris Van Allsburg has crafted a drama with moments both poignant and painful, which is sure to haunt the memory of all who experience it. It has even been suggested that these twenty-six acts create strong associations between words and letters. Could this be an alphabet book in disguise? The playwright will neither confirm nor deny it. You be the judge.
