Nighthawks, that famous Edward Hopper painting depicting a mostly empty, big city street-corner diner, has inspired songs, short stories, and now a play. Alan Austin’s Podski’s Hole imagines the possibilities in pairing a real-life Average Joe with the characters from a renowned painting, who’ve magically escaped its canvas and are sampling the real world. The play (teased with a promising “contains mature content” tag by its producers) is partly inspired by the teachings of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and, one presumes, a solid staging by this consistent company.

Directed by Austin, the production -- which is making its debut at Theatre Artists Studio -- stars Greg Lutz and Chris Daly.
