Diary of a Madman and Poe’s Last Night

Presented by Metropolis Theater

Wed-Sun, October 5-16

In an insane world, theater is the sane solution. Prodan Dimov’s direction of Nikolai Gogol’s masterpiece Diary of a Madman, starring Jon Hayden, will take your mind off it all. Nikolai Gogol’s farcical short story follows the format of a diary to chronicle the descent of the protagonist, Poprishchin, into insanity.

In Poe’s Last Night, David Crawford portrays Poe in his final dying hours on the streets of Baltimore as he is pursued by mysterious assailants both without and within his feverish brain.

Cole Hoyer-Winfield’s Midnight in Molina

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, October 208PM

Life is made up of cycles: Days and nights replay, our mistakes repeat, and plants grow and die outside in the garden. It’s the same story just about anywhere you go, unless that is, you’re in Molina and midnight is drawing near…

Through hand-drawn projections, shadow puppetry, and live music, Midnight in Molina transports viewers to a mystical realm where the earth unravels and dreams come to life — a moonlit town where nothing is what it seems.

Three Days in the Country

Presented by Kinetic Theater

Fri-Sun, November 18-December 4

Ivan Turgenev’s passionate, moving comedy, A Month in the Country has been a source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov.  Set on a beautiful country estate in the mid-nineteenth century, Marber’s remarkable new adaptation is set in motion by the arrival of a handsome new tutor. Over three action-packed and adventure-filled summer days, his arrival brings reckless, romantic desire to an eccentric household and lessons in love are learned by young and old alike: first love and forbidden love, maternal love and platonic love, ridiculous love and last love, the love left unsaid and the love which must out.

Drs. Tameka Cage Conley and Jason Mendez’s Redemption Sons

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, December 88PM

Redemption Sons is hope.  It is change.  It is a parent’s soul split in two and fused back together again.  An African American mother from Louisiana and a Boricua father from the South Bronx engage in an experimental call and response “duologue” as they weave a story of memory, healing, and empowerment.

Tameka Cage Conley, PhD, and Jason Mendez, PhD

Tameka has been published in numerous journals, and has a special online feature of the Southeast Review in response to the Ferguson protests.

Jason is an educator, author, interdisciplinary theater artist, and father of three. As a South Bronx Puerto Rican writer focusing on lived experience, notions of home, and the power of voice, Jason embodies a voice that has been historically silenced and rendered invisible.
