You Know the Lines

Released in 1994, Pulp Fiction proved that films addressing heavy topics could still maintain an absurd comic tone. Writers Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary infused hit men, usually stock heavies whose witty quips came in the form of post-murder one-liners, with likable personalities and amusing insights. Samuel L. Jackson's iconic bad mofo Jules Winnfield said best that it was simply "a bunch of gangsters doing a bunch of gangster shit." The staged reading presentation of Pulp Fiction isolates the movie's crackling dialogue, with local thespians such as Ron Megee, Corrie Van Ausdal, Kimberely Queen and Ron Simonian delivering the screenplay's riveting banter. "It's a great exercise for us to make fast choices as actors," Van Ausdal says. The reading starts at 7:30 p.m. Tonight at the Megee's Student Union space (1317 Union). Tickets cost $5 (the price of a "pretty fucking good milkshake"). For information, call 913-621-1304. staged reading presentation
