Skidmore College Department Of Theater Announces Fall 2013 Black Box Production Polaroid Stories
The Skidmore College Department of Theater is pleased to announce its Fall 2013 black box production, POLAROID STORIES, by Naomi Iizuka. This production is directed by Eunice Ferreira. Performances are October 24-30, 2013. All shows are in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at 8:00pm, except for a Sunday matinee at 2:00pm.
Synopsis: A visceral blend of classical mythology and real life stories told by street kids, Naomi Iizuka's POLAROID STORIES journeys into a dangerous world where myth-making fulfills a fierce need for transcendence, where storytelling has the power to transform a reality in which characters' lives are continually threatened, devalued and effaced. Inspired in part by Ovid's Metamorphoses. Informed, as well, by interviews with young prostitutes and street kids, POLAROID STORIES conveys a whirlwind of psychic disturbance, confusion and longing. Like their mythic counterparts, these modern-day mortals are engulfed by needs that burn and consume. Their language mixes poetry and profanity, imbuing the play with lyricism and great theatrical force.
This may mot be suitable for all audiences due to extreme profanity and violence.
Seating is very limited, so reservations are a must! Call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at (518) 580-5439 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens.
