Just got word that my one-person play, DISPOSSESSED, has been accepted for the summer Sublet Series at Here Theater in July. We'll have the chance to workshop the play and then try it out over four performances, July 19-21.
Curious about it? Here's the riff:
After nearly 20 years, Victoria Linchong has been evicted from her home and she doesn't know what to do with all her books. Solution? DISPOSSESSED, a one-person play about her eviction, after which she will give each person in the audience a book from her ridiculously extensive library.
A bittersweet story of finding and losing home, DISPOSSESSED also investigates the history of apartments from Ancient Rome to now, landlord-tenant relationships since the Code of Hammurabi, and the human instinct for object attachment. An eclectic and whimsical mix of poetry, video, music, and sock puppets, with writing by Sir Peter Hall, Luc Sante and Jane Jacobs, DISPOSSESSED is the personal journey of a struggling artist, from the mean streets of the old Lower East Side to the meaner streets of the new New York.Save the date!
