Traveling experimental theater company The Missoula Oblongata stops in Atlanta tonight. Their current project, Clamlump, will be performed in the Cornbred gallery space of Home Grown restaurant. The play had been initially slated for Couch Couch, but the staging for the play required more space that than that tiny gallery could provide. The unusual charm of staging a play in the back of a restaurant might be the perfect match for this unusual production:

Deep in the hollows of the boarded up stadium, a barkeep sets his blender to pulse, a traveling salesman hawks his popcorn, and a bird with glorious plumage gores on or two people a year, on average. Meanwhile, an unusual young person makes plans to go underground. Because if your world extends only as far as the scoreboard and the nosebleed seats, who will ever understand your sense of humor? "Clamlump", the Missoula Oblongata's new touring production promises the awe of misunderstanding, the privacy of laughter, and a sky dark with feathers.

Em and Henry of the Back Pockets will open and a closing performance from the Hot Shit Theater Company close out the night. The event gets started tonight, Tues., Jan. 18 at 7:30 pm. More details are available on Facebook.
