Solo Drama protest Announces Shows in NYC and Chicago

Solo Drama protest Announces Shows in NYC and Chicago

The new solo performance protest, written by Peter Kim George, directed by Charles Quittner, and featuring Lynnsey Ooten, will embark on a two-city tour to NYC (Feb 9, 11, 12) and Chicago (Feb 15-16).

In 2016, poet and activist Mark Baumer began walking barefoot across America to protest climate change. Words from his last blog entry: "If you see me at a gas station I'm probably the one sipping on a jar of salsa...we are honestly going to soon be living in the greatest mass extinction humanity has ever experienced."

Peter Kim George wrote protest as an hour-long solo piece in response to his friend's harrowing exercise in social justice. protest explores the conflict of having a conscience and a body. Catherine (Lynnsey Ooten) walks barefoot from Providence, Rhode Island to Perris, California, updating her video blog daily, beset by online trolls, swollen feet, too many bananas, boredom, laughter, poverty, crying. A good tip: stay on the painted white line when walking on the road barefoot, it's cooler and smoother.

Presented by Shuga Pie Supreme, protest runs Feb 9, 11, 12 at 7pm @ The Tank, NYC (312 W 36th St) and Feb 15 at 2pm and Feb 16 at 9pm @ Prop Thtr, Chicago (3502 N Elston Ave) as a part of Rhino Fest. Tickets to all shows are $15.

protest is directed by Charles Quittner and features Lynnsey Ooten. The show features sound by Nikolai Mishler, lighting by Chris Roberson, movement by Brandon Powers (2014 Jeff Nominee: Best Choreography), Set by Yanbo Li, dramaturgy by Nina Goodheart, and costumes by Ashley Soliman. protest is produced by Charles Quittner (Drama Desk Nominated producer- Outstanding Solo Performance for Spaceman) and Anne Ciarlone for Shuga Pie Supreme.
