The Now Theatre invites you to an night of three short plays, featuring
two solo performances written by playwright Naomi Wallace, The Retreating World and One Short Sleepe. Following intermission, there will be a premiere reading of a new play, Guajero, by Nic Adams.
The first solo performance, The Retreating World, focuses on Ali, an Iraqi bird keeper from Baghdad and his address before the International Pigeon Convention.
The second solo performance, One Short Sleepe, focuses on Bashir, a Lebanese
spider-enthusiast who spends his time in limbo talking about
Intelligent Design, family, and the bombing of Lebanon.
Guajero is the story of the Guatemalan Democratic Revolution of 1944, told through the eyes of a trash-picker from the Capital City Dump. The goal of the
evening is to share stories that poignantly balance international
viewpoints and universal insights.
The evening will feature, Javan Nelson, Matt Bowdren, Lucas Gonzales, Laura Lippman, Lauren Orlowski, Samantha Bowdren, Ryan DeLuca, Dan Thomson, Brian Johnson, and others!
