Dialogue with Three Chords to Continue Spring Season with OUR WRECKAGE IS THE TAIL OF A FALLING STAR

Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) continues their Spring season with OUR WRECKAGE IS THE TAIL OF A FALLING STAR, the fifth installment in their year-long, serialized play THE MAJOR ARCANA or THE FOOL'S JOURNEY.

D3C continues its partnership with 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 April 28, downstairs at Mr. Dennehy's 63 Carmine Street in Greenwich Village and features a live musical performance from Michal Towber, an Emmy-winning musician who herself cut her teeth in the dens of New York City's Village arts scene. Admission is free with a $3 suggested donation.

"As 'Our Wreckage is the Tail of a Falling Star' begins, The Fool is dead and our characters are trying to build a world from the fragments left behind," explained Gracia. The new works include: "The Tower or A Harrowing Of Hell & Temperance or The Way We Map The Down Below", "The Devil or I Find That I Love Useless Things The Best," and, "The Star or The Hermit Asks For Love."

"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."Our Wreckage" is a night of plays about the art of going beyond painting, a harrowing of hell, and waking the dead with a hot cup of coffee," said Gracia.

"Our Wreckage is the Tail of a Falling Star" features: Jessica Bathurst, Andrew Galteland, Joanna Kozak, Kendra Leigh Landon, Anthony Noto, Edie Nugent, Julie Orkis, Ridley Parson, Alexandra Slater, Joli Tribuzio, and Steve Weinblatt.
