home/sick Will Offer "Flashlight" Performance at NYC's Living Theatre Nov. 1
By Andrew Gans
The Assembly Theater Project's return engagement of the critically acclaimed home/sick was scheduled to begin performances Nov. 1 at New York City's The Living Theatre. Because the theatre is still without electricity following Hurricane Sandy, the cast will offer a "flashlight" reading of the play beginning at 8 PM.
The reading, according to a show spokesperson, will be "by flashlight with some battery-powered sound." The evening will be "pay-what-you-can" with all proceeds benefiting hurricane relief.
Devised and written collectively by The Assembly with direction by Jess Chayes, the cast features Edward Bauer, Ben Beckley, Kate Benson, Anna Abhau Elliott, Luke Harlan and Emily Louise Perkins.
home/sick, according to press notes, is an "ensemble-devised work of political theater that examines the actions of the 1960s radical group The Weather Underground without agreement or censure. The leaders of The Weather Underground seized control of Students for a Democratic Society and reshaped it with the aim of overthrowing the U.S. government. Based on real events, home/sick explores the group’s idealism, infighting and ultimate disintegration, in a forthright examination of collective action."
The production also features installation design by Nick Benacerraf, costumes by Deanna Frieman, lighting by Miriam Nilofa Crowe and sound by Asa Wember. Choreography is by Sara Pauley.
The Living Theatre is located at 21 Clinton Street, NYC.
