An Oak Tree
A father loses his daughter to a car. His response is to meet the loss with a colossal act of projection: the tree next to where she died he transforms into his girl. The man who killed the girl is a stage hypnotist. Since the accident, he's lost the ability to make a convincing suggestion. For the first time since the accident, these two men meet. They meet when the Father volunteers for the Hypnotist's act.

Production detailsAn Oak Tree
is a two-hander. The Hypnotist is played by Tim Crouch. The Father will be played by a different actor at each performance. That second actor, male or female, will walk on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in until they’re in it. Like the Father’s response to his loss, this is another act of projection: the projection of a performance given from one actor to another, from an audience onto an individual.
