Life is in the props and I have a mask and a gun. The right props can turn you from someone the world pushes around into someone who pushes around the world.Meet Darius, an unlikely bank robber. Recently graduated from a Seattle university, hes just spent three days in a Parisian hospital recovering from pneumonia, and his lack of machismo has inspired his younger girlfriend to dump him. But now Darius reality is in flux. Hes on the run from his fathers botched suicide attempt, a very boring job with an insurance company, and his lost sense of danger and potency. For Darius, waving a gun at a bank teller becomes a rejection of the life ahead of him, and, at the same time, an apology for the life behind him.Darius in the Meantime chronicles a young mans trajectory immediately after college, charting the unexpected spaces between a graduation ceremony and a bank robbery-between cap and gown and balaclava and gun. At once comic and searing, Darius in the Meantime gives a clear voice to the tensions and contradictions every graduate faces.
