Travesties takes you on a stylistic joy ride through an imagined meeting between James Joyce, Vladimir Lenin and Dadaist Tristan Tzara who all lived in Zurich during World War I.
When Joyce casts British consular official Henry Carr in a performance of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnestin the lead role of Algernon, Carr finds himself immersed in a wacky and wonderful world of Wildean wit, Joycean limericks, Leninist ideology, and sheer Dada anarchy.
The Plays & Players organization began in 1911 as a social club devoted to expanding and developing new theater experiences for and by its membership. The first President, Maud Durbin Skinner, was the wife of the famed American actor Otis Skinner. What is now the Plays & Players building at 17th and Delancey, originally called the “Little Theatre of Philadelphia,” first opened its doors in 1913 to produce “American plays of ideas,” an underrepresented genre at the time. The building later became the official home of Play & Players.
Please enjoy my 2nd Rep Radio interview. This one happened on 1/7/12 at midnight on the stage of Plays & Players, and it’s the aforementioned live ouija board session in lieu of a traditional interview, in hopes that interviewer Kristen Scatton and I could contact one of Plays & Players’ 3 resident ghosts, and we did with help from my frequent Philly ghost pal Mala. Sadly the recording contains no voices from the dead, aka, electronic voice phenomena. Why does it always work so well on Ghost Hunters?
