Catastrophic Theatre - Evening at The Talk House

Regional Premiere

In an imagined near future, the creative team behind a critically lauded but ultimately unsuccessful play called “Midnight in a Clearing With Moon and Stars” have gathered at their old haunt, The Talk House. It’s the ten-year anniversary of what turned out to be one of the last plays ever performed. Over the course of a night the characters begin revealing disturbing secrets about what their lives have become. The unnamed country they live in is ruled by a charming but frightening autocrat, and many people are finding themselves increasingly complicit and morally compromised in surprising and ominous ways. This new darker-than-dark comedy by Catastrophic favorite Wallace Shawn examines the ways in which artists resist, try to hide from, and sometimes abet brutal state power.Read more
