Cleveland Public Theatre will present the World Premiere of Candlelight Hypothesis Workshop created and directed by Raymond Bobgan on stage at CPT's James Levin Theatre May 11 through May 21, 2022.

Unlike anything you've ever seen, this immersive performance empowers "the guests" (audience members) to curate their own experience. Inside the part museum, part haunted house, part workshop, guests witness scenes, monologues, dance, and music in this bold, multilayered performance. This sensory-rich "exhibition" weaves together threads of a mythical world where origami may come to life, moths can journey to a star, and the candle flame may be a doorway to a magical realm.

Guests are welcomed into the space in small groups at regular intervals from 7:00 and 8:30pm (3:00 and 4:30pm on Sunday). The cycle of performance unfolds multiple times each night. Guests may exit after one cycle or stay through until the very end.

This performance was created through a collaborative process engaging the full cast and design team.

This production includes frank discussions of neurodivergence.

The James Levin Theatre is ADA-compliant featuring a patron elevator and an all-gender, wheelchair accessible restroom.
