Two for Tuesday
Looking for something to do this Tuesday night?
Well, you could see a reading of Johnna Adams' Sans Merci directed by Jessi Hill at the New Group featuring Judith Ivey. After all, this is the play that lovingly destroyed me only a month or two ago in a reading at APAC. It is an extraordinary play, and you should see it.
Here's the info!

Synopsis of Sans Merci
An idealistic young woman - a crippled survivor of an attempted murder by South American revolutionaries- is visited 3 years later by the mother of the other attack victim. Slowly, the two dance through their grief, while negotiating the truth of what brought the two young women together, why they undertook their dangerous humanitarian mission, and what happened on that final day.
...you could see Sheila Callaghan's Fever:Dream, her new adaptation of Calderon's La Vida Es Sueno. For those of you who saw The Dream Chain, our seven playwright riff on La Vida, you may remember Sheila's uniquely wild contribition of the penultimate scene.
Here's the info:
directed by Howard Shalwitz
Say your father was the President of a multinational corporation and you were chained to the customer service desk as soon as you could dial a phone... if someone made you CEO for a day, would you go crazy?
And if all around you the inner workings of the company were in turmoil--people in disguise, marriages plotted, overthrows planned--and you were told that everything happening to you is only a dream, what would you do?
A modern corporate dynasty phantasmagoria freely adapted from Pedro Calderón's LIFE IS A DREAM.
