An original adaptation of Jean Cocteau's play co-created by Vladimir Rovinsky and Nadine DuBois.

A woman alone in her appartment. She talks on the telephone with her lover of the last five years, but the audience hears only one half of the conversation - hers. As conversation grows increasingly dramatic, the true complexities of their relationship are revealed. As if this isn't enough, the phone frequently cuts off and phone lines are crossed, leading to tension and misunderstanding.

This new version of Jean Cocteau's classic features fourth wall breaking moments, when the actress can freely comment on the events that the audience has just observed, inserting a narrative drawn from her own life experiences and even does some singing.

STORIES FROM THE BOOK OF HARBOR LIGHT

Presented by zAmya Theater, The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center & Hennepin Theatre Trust
  • Drama
  • Comedy

Come challenge your perceptions of homelessness and share in a community-building experience. zAmya Theater, in collaboration with Hennepin Theatre Trust and The Salvation Army’s Harbor Light Center, created Stories from the Book of Harbor Light. It is based on storytelling, writing and acting workshops with people staying at the Harbor Light Center and others who have experienced homelessness or are currently homeless.

The workshops and play were inspired by a mural commissioned by the Trust for the Harbor Light Center. Artist Bianca Pettis used the mural to amplify the voices of Harbor Light residents by having conversations with them to inspire her artwork and create a sense of community and belonging. Now, you can see those stories come to life in an original theatre piece at 900 Hennepin.

“A big theme that has stood out for me is homeless people tend to feel alone,” says Stories from the Book of Harbor Light playwright Caroline Mannheimer. “They almost all crave community, fellowship. Sometimes all a person needs is for another to listen to their story.”

See Stories from the Book of Harbor Light March 15 at 6 p.m. at 900 Hennepin Ave. with a reception at 5:30 p.m. A donation of $20 is recommended. Our goal is to bring together a socially diverse audience. Proceeds will benefit The Salvation Army’s Harbor Light Center. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay.

Preview performances at Harbor Light Chapel: March 8 and 9 at 6pm and March 10 at 2pm at 1010 Currie Avenue, Minneapolis. FREE.

When the crooked citizens of a small village learn that the government is sending an undercover inspector to root out corruption, they prepare for his visit with a web of bribery and lies – when a case of mistaken identity sends the whole town into a panic. Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of Gogol’s classic farce is a hilarious reminder of the timelessness of bureaucracy and buffoonery. “One part farce, one part slapstick, this naughty, frothy play is wholly entertaining” –Mpls.
