Part Theatre of the Absurd and part science fiction, “Pluto” is a supernatural odyssey with a three-headed talking dog (Alison Hastings), a quaking refrigerator, a death Martian (Joe Sykes) and gore. Time stands still at 9:30 a.m., while what actually occurs at that time changes over and over like Kurosawa’s “Rashomon.”

Stefanie Friedman is a delight as the vixen tease, Bailey, and Sykes pulls off a natural and believable performance as Death.

Written by Steven Yockey, directed by Melissa Foulger, featuring Wyatt Fenner and Kathleen Wattis, “Pluto” runs at Actor’s Express through Nov. 24. The show runs 90 minutes with no intermission.
