Mad Cat Continues Season with Vaclav Havel's Subversive  AUDIENCE and PROTESTMad Cat Continues Season with Vaclav Havel's Subversive AUDIENCE and PROTEST
by BWW News Desk - Jan 29, 2017

Mad Cat continues its 17th season with a production of two of Vaclav Havel's sharp political dramas AUDIENCE and PROTEST. The subversive Czechoslovakian playwright, Prime Minister & President, Vaclav Havel was a in danger of being declared a 'social parasite' by the neo-Stalinist regime of Gustav Husak when he wrote AUDIENCE & PROTEST back in 1975 & 1978. His plays had been banned and, in the time of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic of 1974, writers faced imprisonment if they did not have a stamp in the employment box of their Citizen Identification passport. Havel solved this problem by finding a job as a brewery hand. Havel rolled barrels in the basement of a regional brewery in Trutnov and the experience profoundly changed his writing. His work in the brewery suddenly gave him back the refreshing existential perspective 'from below, from where the absurd and grotesque dimensions of the world are always more plainly visible.' And then an incident occurred on the job that gave him the inspirational seed for what is his best loved, and arguably finest, play, AUDIENCE. Havel claimed the piece was written quickly and easily 'from the hip,' opening up a new way of working in the theater for Havel - writing his first autobiographical play. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 13, 2016

It is said, there is a play that once you've read or seen, will leave your mind grasping for reality again…For one weekend only, Slipstream is thrilled to release its annual Penny Dreadful Halloween experience! Join us as we explore themes of madness, art and terror in Penny Dreadful 2016: Under the Yellow Sign.  Weaving together 3 narratives adapted from The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers, and Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka, we tell a chilling tale about blurring the lines between art and insanity. A young artist discovers an ancient play that drives one to the edge of madness, and brings his muse with him over the edge.  A young woman is locked away for her own good, with nothing but her imagination for company.  And a sister re-enacts her brother's tragic devolution into a writhing vermin, and the destruction of her family. All under the Yellow Sign of an ancient evil… (more...)

BWW Review: Scena Theatre's REPORT TO AN ACADEMY Shows Kafka at his Unnerving BestBWW Review: Scena Theatre's REPORT TO AN ACADEMY Shows Kafka at his Unnerving Best
by Andrew White - Sep 12, 2016

One of the show's most fascinating aspects is the choreography of McNamara's movements; Red Peter tends to morph into the Variety Show act he was trained to perform, shuffling from side to side and raising his hat and cane as if for applause. But the divorce between the 'performer' and his soul is painfully obvious, and the sense of self-alienation is made all the more poignant in moments when Peter retreats upstage to cradle his head and rock himself sane, before reaching once again for his half-pint bottle of Schnapps.
