Totes Recall, a popular Minneapolis-based comedy podcast, will present its second-ever live episode at Trylon Cinema on March 7. The show features four comedians trying -- and often hilariously failing -- to remember blockbuster movies from their youth. The live show will feature a screening and discussion of the 1987 film The Princess Bride.

Podcast hosts Molly Chase, Beth K. Gibbs, Dan Jaquette and Dan Linden have released 60+ episodes of Totes Recall since they began monthly recordings in 2014. In each episode, they discuss what they remember about a movie, pause to re-watch that movie, then come back and discuss what they got right and what they missed.

  • Drama
  • Storytelling

An original adaptation of Jean Cocteau's play co-created by Vladimir Rovinsky and Nadine DuBois.

A woman alone in her appartment. She talks on the telephone with her lover of the last five years, but the audience hears only one half of the conversation - hers. As conversation grows increasingly dramatic, the true complexities of their relationship are revealed. As if this isn't enough, the phone frequently cuts off and phone lines are crossed, leading to tension and misunderstanding.

This new version of Jean Cocteau's classic features fourth wall breaking moments, when the actress can freely comment on the events that the audience has just observed, inserting a narrative drawn from her own life experiences and even does some singing.
