Play: Dead City
September 27 – October 13, 2018
By Sheila Callaghan
Directed by Jonathan Cole
Samantha Blossom, a chipper woman in her 40s, wakes in her Upper East Side apartment one June morning to find her life being narrated over public radio.
So begins her adventure through the hidden corners of the horror and the wonder we call New York City, a journey that Samatha finds both confusing and inspiring. This 90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses — takes place exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.
