The Size of Pike Write Around

The Size of Pike is described by Moving Arts themselves as a “whiskey-fueled, sharply comic coming-of-middle-age story that explores friendship, identity and need among men.” A must-see comedic production that reminds you of the world beyond the computers we spend hours huddled over and the smart phones that we seem to have glued to our ears. The play is currently showing at Moving Arts Hyperion Station Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. until June 2, 2013.

The Size of Pike, born in 1992, has been revived as part of Moving Arts’ 20th Anniversary 20/20 vision series featuring 20 of the company’s past plays handpicked to be reproduced on stage. This time around, current Artistic Producer Sara Wagner is bringing an interesting alternative spin to the 21-year-old play by staging it environmentally, integrating the audience into the set design.

The play is centered around the gathering of middle-aged, childhood friends before their annual fishing trip. The story unfolds as it focuses on the tension spurred from the divergent life paths these comrades are taking. Adolescent bonds pulled apart by their opposing ways in dealing with the changing world, the play heartfelty explores the relationship between the trio.
