PEBBLE

May 10 to 25, 2019

"Pebble" is a study in missed connections, conflicting impulses and thwarted desires, and a prismatic exploration of loneliness and what it means to be an outsider - or an artist. Pebble yearns to be touched by another, but spends most of her days with jigsaw puzzles and a deck of cards. She flirts recklessly with the Medical Orderly and harbors distrust of Nurse Megan, who chirpily promises special treatments via loudspeaker bulletins until one day, a mysterious visitor comes to see her. In his presence, things begin to unravel, and buried emotions are given release through song, dance, and pills shared like snacks. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking.

"Pebble" features a strong ensemble of veteran Imago performers - Danielle Vermette as the mercurial Pebble, Kyle Delamarter as the mysterious Nick, Jon Farley as the Medical Orderly and Megan Skye Hale as Nurse Megan.

TO FLY AGAIN

March 22 to April 6, 2019

Mad Max, Ionesco and Beckett are inspirations for Mouawad’s desert playground where "there is nothing to be done." A revival of last spring’s smash hit, four dancers and a roaming percussionist clash and collide with a clan of four clowns (à la Marx Brothers) in a beautiful, yet barren, landscape. Thu/Fri/Sat 7:30;

Leonard Cohen is Dead

March 1 to 16, 2019

Crime is acceptable and dead singers lead the world. Physical, explosive and with the mania of a Richard Foreman wild universe, Jerry Mouawad's newest original mash-up takes influences from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, Jean Genet’s Splendid's and sci-fi horror. Thu/Fri/Sat 7:30; Sun 2:00

 

(This play has nothing to do with real Leonard Cohen)
