Under the Influence: Two Plays
Two one-act plays, each adapted from other works, one literary the other visual. THE MAD BROOKLYNITE, based on short stories by novelist Jonathan Lethem, poses the question, what happens when you ask directions of a stranger on a Brooklyn subway platform? SUNLIGHT IN A CAFETERIA imagines the two subjects of an Edward Hopper painting come to life, fully aware that they are in a work of art.
Followed by a conversation about art, authority, inspiration and appropriation.
The Mad Brooklynite by Ben Bowman based upon the short stories The Mad Brooklynite and Breakfast at Brelreck's by Jonathan Lethem directed by Ben Bowman with Ato Essandoh, Clare Barron and Almeria Campbell
Sunlight in a Cafeteria by Anna Ziegler directed by Dina Leytes with Jessica Dickey and Andrew Garman
Produced by Dina Leytes and Gbenga Akinnagbe
