“It is a joy; even if it scares you, go. This is a work of inquisitive humanity and profound gentleness, which over the course of an hour buffs away the armor that lets us proceed through our days brusque, numb and antagonistic.” – The New York Times

When was the last time you made a real connection?

A THOUSAND WAYS (Part Two): An Encounter, created by Obie Award-winning theater company 600 HIGHWAYMEN, is an interactive experience inviting us to reconsider what we can know about someone at a moment when virtual interactions have strained and exhausted our every connection.

Over the course of an hour, explore the lines between stranger and friend as you and another person, separated only by glass, turn a stack of cards into a real encounter between two people. By following a simple script and sharing snippets of your life, you’ll come to know another person as you never have before. Honest and raw, yet masterfully scripted and designed, A THOUSAND WAYS promises to challenge what you know about theater—and each other.

All you need to bring to the table is yourself and a need to be seen.

But no opportunity lasts forever. Now in its final two weeks at the Momentary in downtown Bentonville, this standalone installment of 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s live, three-part performance will only be here through June 27. Don’t miss your chance to experience what critics are calling “…simple but sublime…” (The New York Times) “…truly adventurous, assumption-busting thinking about what theater is and what it can be.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

This is an invitation. Will you attend?
