All Our Tragic Events, starting this weekend May 3, 2014

Hello,

I hope you are enjoying spring.

As we gear up for the big production in Chicago, there will be some exciting All Our Tragic events in Cambridge, MA.

We will be hosting casual open-rehearsals of the four sections at Arts@29 Garden, Harvard University. The address may seem obvious to some, but just in case: 29 Garden St. Cambridge, MA. (entrance on Chauncy St.)

Saturday May 3rd, 7-11PM: Part 1- Physics. This section focusses mainly on Herakles, Medea, Phedre, and Theseus.
Tuesday May 6th, 7-11PM: Part 2- Politics. Presenting all of the Theban plays like Oedipus and Antigone.
Saturday May 10th, 7-11PM: Part 3- Patriotics. This parts is all of the Trojan War plays, from Iphigenia in Aulis up to Trojan Women.
Tuesday May 13th, 7-11PM: Part 4- Poetics. The final segment focusses on the personal disasters surrounding the homecoming from the Trojan War, from Agamemnon to The Furies.

Please join me every evening (or for only one) of these casual presentations of the sections, meet the artists involved, enjoy delicious refreshments. Have fun.

Then the big work-in-progress staging: Saturday, May 17th, 10AM-10PM. The Knafel Center in Radcliffe Yard. 10 Garden St, Cambridge, MA.

This public presentation will feature the text in full roughly-staged with no design elements. It will include intermissions and meal breaks when the audience can  mingle with the playwright/director and the eighteen actors. The actors will be playing the scenes on their feet while reading from electronic devices, the script will also be projected on a large screen, allowing the audience to read along. Snacks and light meals will be provided throughout the day. Please come and go at your leisure, although maintained endurance for the entire event is encouraged.

If you have any questions, or know you will be attending any event please feel free to send me an email: sean@seangraney.com

 

Thank you, hopefully I will see you there.

Sincerely, Sean
