Jack of Dover
Second in our Empty Space Series The Filling Station & Mother Road Theatre Company continue its EMPTY SPACE SERIES with Mark Hisler, Brian Haney and Catharine Pilafas in JACK OF DOVER by Derek Davidson and directed by Mike Ostroski. JACK OF DOVER, which is a quote from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, won best play at the American College Theater Festival and was performed at the Kennedy Center.
Jeff, editor at a large publishing house, is meeting with his uncle Jack in the city for coffee. Jack, a sort of Studs Terkel of New York, has made a lifelong career of collecting peoples' stories and converting them to verse. Now Jeff wants to publish his Uncle's magnum opus, but Jack has other ideas. Over the course of their sometimes heated conversation, the diner air grows thick with the aroma of steak and coffee, literary quotations and pop-riffs, avuncular tirades and meditations on what it means to be an artist in our postmodern world.
