Here comes the King! Or, rather, here comes a man who took a fall, hit his head, and now believes himself to be King Enrico IV. Or does he? Is he insane, or a truth teller? Pirandello’s central theme of madness versus the mask that society forces us to wear is the focus of this never-before-seen adaptation, where ‘mad’ Henry speaks directly to an audience asking the question: What is to be mad? What is to be normal? In this monologue, Enrico IV speaks only his own words from the play.
Featuring three times Obie Award Rocco Sisto (Donnie Brasco, Quills, Broadway’s The King and I).
Running Time: 60 minutes, no intermission
In repertory with
A Story of Love and Soccer
by Michele Santeramo
translated by Peter Speedwell, adapted by Laura Caparrotti and Dave Johnson
With DAVE JOHNSON and ERIC GRAVEZ
The place is a village in the south of Italy, where a group of immigrants compete in the first ever clandestine soccer world championship to determine who will have control over the city center for the following year. Italy, Libya, Morocco, Poland, Ukraine and Senegal are the impromptu national teams fighting to become the champions of their suburban world. In the middle of it all is a love story between an Italian midfielder player and an Indian girl and in the background the local Mafia.
Winner of the 2016 “Premio di Drammaturgia DCQ” Award and of the 2016 “La Riviera dei Monologhi” 2016 Award.
Two women meet in a mysterious station where all trains have been cancelled. Where do they come from? Where are they going? Complete strangers and yet mirrors of each other, in spite of their fear and suspicion they slowly begin a dialog. Voices of immigrants from different eras and locales fill the station, recalling past journeys. As the voices build to a crescendo, a train approaches.
