Mar­riage à la mode: Oa­sis The­atre Com­pany

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — J.L.

Mar­riage by the Mas­ters, an evening of clas­sic one-act plays pre­sented by the Oa­sis The­atre Com­pany, takes a sar­donic look at the in­sti­tu­tion through the eyes of Ge­orge Bernard Shaw (How He Lied to Her Hus­band), An­ton Chekhov (A Mar­riage Pro­posal), and Molière (The Forced Mar­riage). Awk­ward pro­pos­als, flow­ery love po­ems, con­trived sit­u­a­tions, and in­ap­pro­pri­ate age dif­fer­ences pro­vide in­sight into old-school courtship pro­to­cols in the age of Tin­der hookups. The Oa­sis The­atre Com­pany, re­cently re­lo­cated to Santa Fe from New York City, of­fers its in­au­gu­ral lo­cal pro­duc­tion at the Adobe Rose The­atre (1213-B Park­way Drive, 505-629-8688) open­ing on Thurs­day, July 13, at 7:30 p.m. Per­for­mances con­tinue Thurs­days through Sun­days through July 30.
