ABOUT BIG RED SUN

Come get swept away by a thrilling and beautiful score that weaves from Klezmer, to jazz and then on to rock and roll.

Our Few and Evil Days – Inis Nua

On today’s podcast, I have one of the most cryptic conversations with director, Tom Reing about the American Premiere of “Our Few and Evil Days”. We breakdown the boxes the characters are in and how they manage to get there. All while dancing around the elephant in the room. The production encompasses the Proscenium at the Drake in largest-scale scenic design for Inis Nua Theatre Company. Stay Tuned!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT OUR FEW AND EVIL DAYS

Daughter brings home beau to meet the parents. It’s all so normal, but this perfect family photo is about to slip out of the frame. Elements of Gothic horror poke sharply into this story of unsettling domesticity as obsession, guilt and agony reveal devotion’s dark side.

Love, Lies and Taxidermy – Inis Nua

ABOUT LOVE, LIES AND TAXIDERMY

Valentyn can’t decide which is worse—the teenage anguish of his unfulfilled love for Ashley or the dire predicaments of both their parents. Throw in an ice cream truck, a possible soft core porn movie and some of the more bizarre uses of taxidermy for a funny and endearing picture of young love and middle-aged longing, brought to life in a claustrophobic small town in Wales.

Rebroadcast: WHITE – James Ijames

On today’s podcast, on a beautiful night in Old City, I caught up with James Ijames, whose star is shining so brightly right now with his latest production of WHITE, onstage at Theatre Horizon. We talk about the production’s journey and what motivates him to create the work he does. Stay Tuned.

ABOUT WHITE

Gus is an artist. He’s just not a famousartist. So when a major art museum puts out a call for “new perspectives,” Gus—a white man—decides to seize his opportunity. He hires a black actress to present his work as her own, but as the actress gets more deeply into her role, Gus’s scheme spirals out of his control. Award-winning Philadelphia playwright James Ijames challenges assumptions about race, gender, identity and art in this seriously funny new comedy.
