Sam Creely's BARBAROUS NIGHTS to Play Invisible Dog, Begin. Tonight
Barbarous Productions will present the New York premiere of Sam Creely's Barbarous Nights, a sharp and surreal play inspired in part by the love letters of Lorca and Dali beginning tonight, July 5, 2013 through Saturday, July 13, 2013 at Invisible Dog (51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn).

In BARBAROUS NIGHTS, Buster Keaton falls out of his film and into a poetic world, a 1930s both future and past. Grapefruit roll through the sand like tumbleweed. The streets are filled with optical shops. There, a rush of travelers -- a blind maiden struggling with the length of her dress, her nigh Victorian mother, a ridiculously attractive man peddling feathers -- float through Buster's nights like a dream as his sanity and the stoic stone face that made him famous start to crumble.
The cast of BARBAROUS NIGHTS features Nick Lehane, Sallie Eskins, Adrian Blake Enscoe, Dan Vidor, Lucia Roderique, and Christian DeMarais.
The production features scenic and lighting design by Josh Smith, costume design by Megan Spatz, projection design by Bart Cortright, sound design by Anthony Mattana, original music by Adrian Blake Enscoe and Anthony Mattana, choreography by Katie Rose McLaughlin, fight choreography by David Laws, mask design by Adrian Blake Enscoe and Nick Lehane, dramaturgy by Corinna Archer, assistant director Miranda Steege, stage manager Hannah Johnson-Walsh, producer Anne Troup, and production manager Taylor Speegle.
