Regional, Round 1: Multitool vs. Unlubed Condoms
« on: Nov 30, 2012, 07:51 pm »
The Regional Division starts with a somewhat uneven challenge, although one shouldn't rule out a competitor entirely without considering the full merit of what it brings to bear. The ever-present multi-tool is certainly versatile but its history has been plagued by in-fighting over brands and numerous injuries from cheap Chinese knockoffs. (Although one might say the history of unlubed condoms has suffered with similar issues.) While within the theatre industry the long-shot underdog condoms have been pretty much restricted to use by the sound department, imaginative stage managers could certainly put them to other uses somewhere between microphones and their original intended purpose.

Unlubbed condoms have only one real theatrical use (as I hope if one used them for their actual purpose they'd be kind enough.....oh you get what I mean...). Multi tool just by its name already implies awesome.

Multitool! This is a no-brainer.
I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Ionesco
