Single Carrot Theatre, 2600 N. Howard St.,

Single Carrot’s seventh season—the first in its new location—was great and it was, in terms of acting, largely carried by Paul Diem, who starred in the final three shows, “The Flu Season,” “The Memo,” and “The Apocalypse Comes at 6PM.” Diem might not have quite the depth of Bruce Nelson—who has won this category more times than we can count—but he brings a vulnerable electricity to each performance that is thrilling to watch. In “the Memo,” as the professor of the invented language Ptydepe, he moves, achingly, between certainty, bluster, passion, and dejection in a way that felt more like life than acting.
