North American Cultural Laboratory Theatre (NaCl), the experimental theatre company who brought Arca Nova to New York's Washington Square Church, present their next work, The Passion according to G.H. [sic]. The solo performance, which opened March 23, will end its limited engagement April 14 at the Access Theatre.
The play is adapted from the Brazilian novel by Clarice Lispector about a woman named G.H. whose dull life is turned upside down when she one day discovers a huge cockroach. Tannis Kowalchuk performs and sings the humorous and highly physical character. Brad Krumholz directs.
NaCl is more known for its ensemble works. Other works from the company include Arca Nova, about the first book of the Bible and The Time Cycle, a children's theatre piece. For more information on the company, visit their website at www.nacl.org.
