Drama One-act / 4m The Bundle Man is self-described as “a loving parody of Theatre of the Absurd” and its references to that genre are clear without being obvious. Into the company of three disparate (and desperate characters—a tyrant, a coward and a foppish lover, as at odds with each other as they are codependent, wanders an itinerant and independent spirit. The mysterious bundle toter yields startling surprises. The four embark on a fateful journey that is by turns eccentric, frightening, compassionate and entrancing, delivered at all times with a heightened sense of language that is the hallmark of Ilsa Gilbert’s exceptional talent. The Bundle Man was one of the earliest plays performed at The Old Reliable and has continued to enchant audiences for several decades now.
