Artaud and his Double
Antonin Artaud was a revolutionary figure in 20th century theatre.  While his writings were inspiring the avant garde of Europe, Artaud was residing in an asylum for the insane.  Symptoms of Schizophrenia and an addiction to opium would define much of his later life.  Despite his illness he was able to author several books including his seminal work A Theatre and its Double where he discusses the need to destroy present forms of theatre and revert to a more ritualistic style steeped in animalistic desires and symbolism.  It would be known as the Theatre of Cruelty.  This play examines his last days, institutionalized and suffering from the delusions that have plagued much of his life.  

PERFORMANCE DATES: June 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 at 7:30pm; June 19 and 26 at 2pm.
