Raise your hand if you've indulged in a bit of schadenfreude at some point in your life. Now Fragments, a new play by Michael Weems making its regional premiere with Cone Man Running Productions, plays to the humor found in witnessing the misfortune of others. Three roommates throw an impromptu party and their worst fears are realized: Elizabeth (Whitney Zangarine) seems hell-bent on robbing men of their cojones, George (Zachary Braver) is both infatuated with and fearful of the goddess Cassandra and Ryan (Andraes Hunt) has a girlfriend straight out of your worst nightmare. Stir in some alcohol and watch the sparks fly. It's the second main stage production in Cone Man's new digs on Navigation so come see what they've done with the space and try not to laugh too hard at the sad destinies of these fated characters. 8 p.m. August 17. Continuing 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and August 21. August 17 through August 26. The Beacon Theatre, 5102 Navigation. For information, call 281-972-5897 or visit conemanrunning.com. $15 to $20. [Organizer's description:] Cone Man Running Productions is proud to present the regional premiere of Fragments by Michael Weems, directed by Ruth McCleskey. A little liquid courage goes a long way... Between Elizabeth's 'loving' emasculation of any man nearby, George's rampant paranoia that the sexiest girl ever - Cassandra - will make him her bitch, and Ryan's maniac nightmares of his castrating fiancé, these roommates and the rest of the myriad ensemble throw together a slap dash party to inevitably fulfill their sad destinies through wildly mismatched love affairs, life-altering prank phone calls, and the perpetual misconnection between an ambitious TV journalist-to-be and the guy next door. Fragments invites you to laugh at their misfortune, empathize if youve gone throughit too recently, and reminisce on when you were so naïve and fondly wonder. What the hell was I thinking?! Starring: Elizabeth: Whitney Zangarine Ryan: Andraes Hunt Sam: Adam Robertson Paige: Katherine Rinaldi George: Zachary Braver Cassandra: Kacie Adams
