Descriptive text is scant for The Dinosaur Within, the next new play to hit Boston Court (previews this week, West Coast premiere this Saturday), but the evidence suggests there will not be any dinosaurs on stage. There will, however be dinosaur footprints, or at least talk about them: the disappearance of a set of footprints in the Australian outback sets off a chain of dramatic events involving a grieving father, a movie star lost to time, and an Aboriginal elder. Naturally, it’s a play about the depth of human loss. We always trust Boston Court with, if not our life, than at least a few hours and some well-spent bones. And we don’t know about you, but we’ve always felt our dinosaur within was Earl Sneed Sinclair.
