Seventeen-year-old Vega Stern meets a seductive outcast and gets sucked into psychedelic, then hard drugs in 1970s Germany. It is the beginning of her psychedelic roller coaster ride through ecstatic highs to hitting rock bottom painfully severs the ties to her first love to escape her dangerous drug habit, and travels through Greece and Israel in search of great art and true meaning, not knowing that her drug use resulted in long lasting consequences. Private Universe is a kaleidoscope of vivid descriptions and unusual travel adventures, but it is primarily a story of survival and self-invention.

2:00 PM Stage: The Explorers Club Neil Benjamin's post-colonial comedy lambastes Victorian rectitude, varieties of male sexism, and the British love of Empire (one even claims he discovered the "East Pole"). How? By having a woman join the heretofore all-male Explorer's Club in 1879. She's Phyllida Spotte Hume (Jessica John, sharp and funny). Theintrepid adventuressdiscovered a Lost City (at the "worst place on earth") and earned the right to be a member. As proof, she brings Luigi, a native, painted blue. The premise intrigues, but the slight play hops from episode to episode without an engine driving it forward. Lamb's Players production, ably directed by Robert Smyth, gets every possible laugh from the piece. And the male actors (Francis Gercke, Ross Hellwig, John Rosen, Brian Mackey, Omri Schein, Paul Eggington, and Brian Salmon) catch a series of sliding glass tumblers with near-Olympian dexterity.Worth a try.
