VISTA — Carlsbad playwright Steven Oberman will launch the world premiere of his new comedy, “Claire Voyant,” in Vista this May. The play is a comic book spoof about psychic superheroes, which runs May 7 through May 17 at the Avo Playhouse, 303 Main Street. Performance times are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Ticket information and sales are available through the VisTix Ticket Office at (760) 724-2110 or online at www.vistixonline.com.
Set in San Francisco in 1975 and featuring a cast of characters worthy of the funny pages, “Claire Voyant” follows the adventures and misadventures of Claire, a clairvoyant, as she struggles with her abilities. She finds herself caught between psychic identical twins, one who is super evil while the other fights for justice. Claire must face her own fears and doubts in order to save the day in true superhero fashion.
“Claire Voyant” marks the debut of a full-length play by Oberman, who first became interested in playwrighting as a student at UCSD, where his one-act play “Triple Take” was produced at the Undergraduate Arts Festival. More recently, he has written several educational-themed short plays and skits for Theatre Arts for Fun Education, the nonprofit organization he founded in 2006, which utilizes theatre as a teaching tool.
