Krapp’s Last Tape and Not I

Presented by TACT

Fri-Sat, July 1-9

Krapp’s Last Tape, Performed by Martin Giles
An aging man lives a lonely and shabby existence in a darkened room. At year’s end, he takes out a bottle of wine, a banana, and his tape recorder, and he listens to his own voice recount the glories and hopes of his youth. Krapp’s Last Tape is the most affectionate portrait of a character that Samuel Beckett has ever done.  A tour-de-force of a one-man show.

Not I, Performed by Daina Michelle Griffith
An empty stage save for a lone womans lips. The voice of a generation of woman that were unable to speak and now that they have begun cannot stop. A truly harrowing and chilling recounting of an abused and tortured soul. Alone in an empty world. Unable to be heard or to hear herself.

Floyd Collins

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 26-28Friday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday 2PM

Based on the true story.  In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself becomes the attraction when he gets trapped 200 feet underground.  Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fights for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above explodes into America’s first genuine media circus.

This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, as it tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.

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.

Cole Hoyer-Winfield

Cole is a graphic artist and storyteller. His work explores folklore, visual language, and narrative traditions from different cultures and how to transform them into new experiences for audiences around the world.

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.
