The Experimental Theater Board (ETB) is proud to present a very unusual play called "The Circumference of a Squirrel", written by award-winning playwright John Walsh. John Walsh has been nationally recognized for his original script writing and his plays have been acted all over the country. "The Circumference of a Squirrel" is a one-man show detailing the life of Chester, a self-described rodentophobe since his intolerant, bigoted father instilled the fear in him during childhood. Chester's deep-seeded fear and hatred of squirrels is the source of a great mental revelation that results in Chester learning to love humanity again.
