The Lark Theatre Co. in N.Y. is presenting the world premiere of Stephen R. Culp's The 13 Hallucinations of Julio Rivera, Feb. 5-9.
The play tells of a victim of a vicious attack by skinheads -- and the questions that run through his mind as he is dying.
Culp's was inspired to write The 13 Hallucinations of Julio Rivera after reading about the real-life details of a successfully prosecuted hate crime in N.Y.
The drama, with music by William Whitefield, is being directed by Jimmy Bohr.
The cast includes Philip Anthony, Anthony M. Brown, Maria Cellario, Paul Dawson, Tom Keough, Callum Keith-King, Jeff LaGreca, Ric Oquita, Dianne J. Scheider and Tony Templeton. The play is part of the "Bare Bones" series of plays at the Lark -- which presents dramas with the simplest suggestion of sets, costumes, lights and music. Many of the "Bare Bones" productions, including the late-1997 production of Flesh and Bones, subsequently receive more fully developed stagings.
Performances are at Lark's studio at 939 Eighth Ave., 4th floor. For tickets, $12, call (212) 246-2676.
