Come for the magic, stay for the ham sandwiches! Nature Theater of Oklahoma presents a short 4 hour version of the legendary 11 hour melodramatic spectacle, No Dice.  An epic of the everyday blown to transcendental proportions, No Dice takes over one hundred hours of the company's recorded telephone conversations and filters them through the conventions of amateur dinner theater to arrive at a uniquely mind-altering experience.  As the actors toil mightily to transform the stuff of their own lives into art, the veneer of cheap theatricals falls away around them.  In the end, the performance melts, and we are left with just the humanity.   Photo Credit: Peter Nigrini
