A secret performance.
A one man show.
The story of a 12 year old boy
who tries to set the record
for the most days leaving school sick with a fever
and in the process falls in love with the school nurse
and learns to appreciate punk rock.
You’ll leave with a mix tape
made from the audience’s memories
and a promise never to speak about what you witnessed
or else you’ll get kicked out.
Kirk Lynn’s The Cold Record is a play that fits in a tote bag. Inside are wonders made from minimal materials — a tape recorder and headphones. The Cold Record is part of a series of portable projects that the Rude Mechs have been developing since losing their longtime home and venue, The Off Center. Written and performed by Lynn, this tape play can be performed anywhere, it just needs an audience who can keep a secret. Lynn’s insightful wit and inventiveness are on full display in this latest project, leaving you with a mixed tape of experiences and songs to live by.
Written and Performed by Kirk Lynn
