"Car Wash Incident" by Jack+Leigh Ruby, former con artists who have re-conceptualized their original fabricated insurance scam "evidence" as multimedia art, after over a decade in prison.
Everything including the people are doubled.
What appears as 4 characters engaged in an intrigue driving around the lot of a car wash is actually
8 characters on a set with two of everything:
people, street corners, cars, signs, trash cans, tufts of grass, fire hydrants, etc have all been doubled, expanding the narrative possibilities of a simple task: the delivery of a plastic bag.
The actors improvised dialogues of contradictory story lines as they performed the circular event.
