52_card_pickupAnother unique way of looking at card play as art, 52 Card Pickup is a play with 52 short scenes about the rise and fall of a relationship.

When the play starts, the actors take a deck of cards and throw it in the air, like the “game”. They then pick up the cards, one by one, acting out the appropriate scene for each card. Thus, the time within the play shifts forward and backward, and no two performances are ever exactly alike.
