Dialogue with Three Chords to Launch Spring 2016 Season with THE WELL AND THE SKY

Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) kicks off their Spring season with THE WELL AND THE SKY, the fourth installment in their year-long, serialized play THE MAJOR ARCANA or THE FOOL'S JOURNEY.

D3C continues its partnership with the Brooklyn College, alma-mater of D3C co-founders Stephen Gracia and Michael LoPorto, featuring actors from the school's BFA program. The ongoing narrative is presented in a season-spanning format with interconnected characters and themes, but each play also functions as a stand-alone piece.

The show starts at 8pm on February 25, downstairs at Mr. Dennehy's 63 Carmine Street, New York, NY 10014. Admission is free with a $3 suggested donation.

Returning for the second half of it's fifth season producing free indie theatre in Greenwich Village, D3C's season opener marks a reversal of fortune for the "The Major Arcana or The Fool's Journey" sequence of plays. According to playwright Stephen Gracia, "The Well and The Sky" features "four noir-ish plays about the dangers of solitaire, exit wounds, and why you should never trust someone who orders a round of top-shelf bourbon for the bar."

"The Major Arcana or The Fool's Journey" will consist of 23 individual plays that see main character 'The Fool' on a journey through each of the Major Arcana Tarot cards.

This is the second time D3C has presented a serialized play. "As with our previous serialized drama, 'Shipyard Souls & A Compass Rose', each night of 'The Major Arcana' exists as a complete story that can be enjoyed completely out of context," said Gracia, adding: "if you see it all, you get the full story."

"The Well and The Sky" features: Sofiya Cheyenne, Marisela Grajeda Gonzalez, Sean Mellott, Edie Nugent, Django Palty, Cristina Pitter, Maia Sage, and Tina WongLu.

Dialogue with Three Chords was founded by Stephen Gracia and Michael LoPorto and applies the do-it-yourself philosophy of punk to the stage and features short plays and live music. Their work has also been produced at Sargent Theatre, Makor Theater, DUMBO Theatre Exchange, Levenson Hall at Brooklyn College, and the Theaters at 45 Bleecker.

The Brooklyn College BFA Acting program offers intensive courses in Stanislavsky-based acting, Alexander technique, improvisation, voice production, diction and dialects, solo performance, stage combat, the business of acting, acting with the camera, and theater history.
