Photo Flash: The Brick Theater, Inc. presents UNTITLED AMERICAN FLAG CRAFT PROJECT

William Burke wrote a monologue. 20 performers are doing it their way while they respectfully dismantle and rearrange and rejuvenate the American flag with scissors, moxie and glue while explaining the unifying and important factors of their favorite beverages.

Also guest artist musical interludes with live deconstructed performances of American anthems. Also a potluck. Also for everyone. 111 flags will be disassembled and reassembled for the pleasure of your viewing.

Each time slot includes a trio of monologue performances so each night there are 9 different performers. Buy one ticket and stay through the whole night (space willing). Or just come for one. Your call. We'll be there.

60 minutes at 7pm, 8:15pm and 9:30pm.

Featuring Jessica Almasy*, Alexa Andreas, Quilan "Cue" Arnold, Kaaron Briscoe*, Christopher J. Cancel-Pomales, Zoë Geltman, Alice Gorelick, LUCY KAMINSKY, Matt Korahais*, Maya Lawson*, Rachel Lin, Linda Mancini, Oona Montandon, Daaimah Mubashshir, Ronald Peet*, Vanessa Pereda-Felix, Isabelle Pierre, Leta Renée-Alan, Angeliea Stark, Merlin Whitehawk* and more!
