“What I cannot create, I do not understand.” – Richard Feynman

New Ground Theatre’s upcoming show, QED, traces the many accomplishments of physicist Dr. Richard Feynman, including his formula for quantum electrodynamics (which gives this play its title) and his participation in the development of the atomic bomb.

New Ground is one of my favorite local theatre groups because it doesn’t settle for slapstick comedies, cliché-filled scripts, or sappy dramas. Instead, the not-for-profit organization with the mission to “bring the best in contemporary and original theatre to the Quad Cities” does superb work living up to that goal. New Ground’s upcoming show, Talley’s Folly, the recipient of the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for drama, is certainly no exception to the “best theatre” rule and is perhaps one of the most unconventional, intriguing love stories I’ve ever seen on stage. The production opens August 26 and runs through September 5 at Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf.

New Ground Theatre’s current show, David Schulner’s An Infinite Ache, appears to be a conventional love and marriage story. A man and woman meet, fall in love, and get hitched – nothing unusual. But the script is so intricately crafted that we see snapshots of the couple as they progress through a partnership of more than five decades and take on sex, marriage, children, and death – in a mere hour and fifteen minutes. The fast-paced, natural dialogue travels seamlessly through the years, with no specific scene divisions. Time simply progresses.

Female problems. According to this musical by Nicole Hollander and Cheri Coons, we (as in women) have lots of them. Whether it’s ridding our closets of shoes, trying new hairstyles every month, loving our insufficient-but-tolerable husbands, or fretting over the weight gain from (gasp!) a piece of German chocolate cake, we have lots of important issues on our minds that require a lifetime of worry, tummy-tucks, and doctor visits.
