Earshot, Morris Panych's tale of a man afflicted with super-human hearing, opens its American premiere Aug. 12 at Sacramento's B Street Theatre.

Doyle, alone and unemployed, finds himself suddenly able to hear everything going on in the building surrounding his apartment. Instead of taking the new ability as a gift, Doyle sees his involuntary eavesdropping as a reason to question the meaning of life in this dark comedy by Canadian playwright Panych.

Panych's plays include 7 Stories and the award-winning The Ends of the Earth. The B Street also staged his Vigil and Lawrence and Holloman.

Kurt Johnson is Doyle, the sole character in Earshot. John Lamb directs.

Tickets are $20.50-$16.50. The B Street Theatre is located at 2711 B Street. For tickets and information, call (916) 443-5300. Founded by the Busfield brothers, "thirtysomething"'s Timothy and Buck, in 1992, the B Street has produced world premieres by such writers as Aaron Sorkin, Joe DiPietro and James McLure.
