Going Down in Flames
What if we write a play about a clown who gets dementia?
Based on a true story, the world premiere of "Going Down in Flames" by Danny Mankin runs May 30-June 9 at Headwaters Theatre and is directed by Angela Van Epps. Joan Schirle, actor, playwright, director, deviser and teacher, and the founding artistic director of DellArte International in Blue Lake, CA., will play Joan Mankin and her legendary clown character, Queenie Moon.
Through clown and physical comedy, "Going Down in Flames" is both funny and tragic as we travel with Joan/Queenie Moon in and out of the circus ring and through her twisted version of reality.
Join us before the show on May 30 for a special AFTD reception at Albert Abbey at 6pm. Tickets to the reception are $50 and include admission to Going Down in Flames that night.
