The Diaries of Adam and Eve
In this witty and modern adaptation of Mark Twain's affectionate satire, Adam and Eve - the world's first couple - confront their many differences to find successful ways of living and loving together. Whether they're creating language, inventing fire, taming nature or discovering love and death, what they learn about each other on the way will be familiar and funny to anyone who has ever experienced a close relationship. The play explores, in a very accessible way, companionships, its challenges and consolations, and has some really moving moments in among the laughs and smiles.
In the Native State
The play takes place in two timelines. In 1930 (the year of Gandhi's Salt March) Flora Crewe, a young poet with a somewhat scandalous reputation, travels to India for her health, to deliver a series of lectures on British literary society. She meets an Indian painter, Nirad Das, and agrees to sit for a portrait. Meanwhile in contemporary England another young Indian painter, Anish, goes to visit Mrs Eleanor Swan, the sister of Flora Crewe. Eleanor spent much of her life in India before independence, and clearly is deeply attached to it. She and Anish clash over interpretation of Indian history and untangle the relationship of Flora and Nirad. The title contains a pun on "native", either one of the states of India with its own ruler or nudity (the portrait of Flora was of her in the nude).
Two American Voices: What we mean by song
What we mean by song: two American artists, singer/songwriter Gregory May and poet/performer Stephen Thomas, present original works to highlight one another and to illustrate the range of what they mean when they speak of song.
Within the DARK MONDAY series, we have regularly presented local English language playwrights, poets, novelists and songwriters. This month, we feature the widely published and highly regarded American poet Stephen Thomas, who is an especially accoplished performer of his own poems and those of other poets. He has appeared with such masters as Ken Kesey, James Dickey and Denis Johnson.
Gregory L. May, who at the age of twelve was discovered by Motown Records and transplanted to LA. For Motown, he wrote songs for such artists as the Temptations and the Four Tops. His powerful voice and virtuosity led to his recording such hits as "A 1000 Reasons Why". As a member of the LA Jazz Choir, he has twice been nominated for Grammy Awards
Autopsy Room Foor
Stephen King, the master of the macabre says: "At some point, I think every writer of scary stories has to tackle the subject of premature burial, if only because it seems to be such a pervasive fear." Autopsy Room Four is a humorous and spine chilling short story in which Howard Cottrell awakes from some form of unconsciousness to find himself laid out in an autopsy room. As the doctors prepare to begin the examination, Howard struggles to come to grips with what is happening. After realising that he is not dead, he deduces that he is in a paralyzed state, and struggles to somehow inform doctors of this fact before they cut into him. Will he manage to attract their attention before it's too late?
