Theater | Franz Kafka's Letter to My Father (virtual)


In 1919, an ailing Franz Kafka wrote a letter to his father. In it he put his anger, his fear, his guilt, his loneliness, his ingratitude, his debt, his despair, his joy, his pride, his confusion, his laughter, his hate, his memory, his shame, his tears, his disgust at everything his father represented and his profound hope that he might one day measure up to such a remarkable man. The letter never reached its destination. Now, live from quarantine, you are invited to a curious event — part YouTube meltdown, part hidden-camera show, part seance — as M-34 Productions attempts to deliver it at last. Directed by James Rutherford, and performed by Michael Guagno.

Staged Reading | Tony, Grammy and Emmy winner Andre De Shields in Frederick Douglass: Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory (virtual)


Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Andre De Shields performs an excerpt from his self-crafted solo work "Frederick Douglass: Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory." The one-man show explores the life and achievements of the great emancipator Frederick Douglass. "Though Douglass began his life as a slave, through heroic effort, he became one of America's most important and historically influential icons," said De Shields. "Frederick Douglass: Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory" tells a story about brutality and deliverance that is implausible yet historically accurate. De Shields portrays the Great Black Emancipator with a performance that is as filled with hope and achievement as it is darkness and anger.
