TLT’s ‘Knock, Knock’ in outdoor rehearsal

Published 4:53 pm Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Techniques for learning lines vary from actor to actor – poring over scripts in the bathroom, listening to audiotapes or doing recitations in the mirror work for some people. But for these two “Knock, Knock” actors (Elvin Clark and Lavin Cuddihee), mowing the lawn, inhaling pollen and escaping yellowjackets seem to do the trick. Being next-door neighbors helps, too – you can meet anywhere in the yard to run lines. Time magazine describes “Knock Knock,” by Jules Feiffer, as “a kooky, laugh-saturated miracle play in the absurdist tradition.” Clark and Cuddihee are joined on stage by Nancy Winker, Chris Bartol and Josh Moffitt; Frances McCain directs. “Knock Knock“ runs April 19-22 and April 26-29 at the Tryon Little Theater’s Workshop. The box office opens April 5. Call 828-859-2466 or visit for more information. (photo by Connie Clark)
