Target Margin Theater will present The Iceman Lab June 12-25 at HERE Arts Center, four shows billed as a “radical re-imagining” of Eugene O’Neill’s classic play The Iceman Cometh.
Each of the play’s four acts is being interpreted by a different theatre artist, producing varied results, including a song cycle, puppetry and dance. The acts can be viewed as separate performances or in a single sitting; the special marathon performances will take place June 11 and 18 only. The Iceman Lab is created by Julia Sirna-Frest, Yuris Skujins, Katie Rose McLaughlin and Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.
“We are thrilled to be continuing our two-season exploration into Eugene O’Neill’s work. Our Lab Series allows us to take four unique vantage points on The Iceman Cometh, affording audiences the chance to fully explore O’Neill’s epic play as separate experiments or all together for two special marathon performances,” said founder/artistic director David Herskovits in a statement.
The Lab program will also include a special workshop presentation of Strange Interlude by David Greenspan; a staged reading of Beyond the Horizon by Ann Marie Dorr; and an afternoon pub crawl with O’Neill biographer Robert M. Dowling.
