The term brotherly love may be an Aristotelian cliché, but in practice, brotherly love is a little more complicated. At least it is in On an Average Day, in which estranged brothers Jack and Robert try to reconcile their weird history in their decrepit childhood home while trying to solve the mystery of the disappearance of their father.
It is not a good day for these brothers, says Kate Roselle, associate artistic director for Curious Theatre Company, which is mounting a new production of the John Kolvenbach-penned play. Its a really cool play in that it keeps sort of unveiling itself, and it really falls within the realm of the kind of themes Curious stays true to. We like to pick plays that communicate a universal question in an intimate way, and this play absolutely does that.
But while it fits squarely within Curiouss mission, its timing falls outside of the theaters regular rotation: The plays run is the first summer show the company has put on in several years.
On an Average Day opens tonight at 8 p.m. and continues Wednesday through Saturday evenings until July 23 at Curious Theatre, 1080 Acoma Street; tickets are $25 ($10 tickets are available for students with ID one hour before the show).

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 30. Continues through July 23, 2011
