Tom Poole has made his way writing comedy, mainly for the stage, for Children’s Theater, Theatre de la Jeune Lune and many others. His latest, Safe as Houses — an absurdist take on real estate — has found a home through Joseph Scrimshaw’s new company, Joking Envelope. 3-Minute Egg met Poole at a rehearsal. Performances run through April 17 at Minneapolis Theatre Garage.
