2.2.2 -- HERMAPHRODITISM THROUGH THE AGES
Hello, Hermaphrodites! My Summer 2007 project was a production with Ed Malin and Maria Micheles, of a new musical mystery play. I got my poetic license from Pedro Calderon. Is it magic realism or just plain surrealism? The dedication of this piece, 2.2.2 (Hermaphroditim Through the Ages) is to those who dare sever dada from surrealism. It premiered in "Oh Happy Three," a collection of gender exploring one-acts produced by Manhattan Theatre Source for its Straight from the Source Summer Series. It ran for eight performances from August 6th through 16th. Director: Sarah Marck A great new show!

The postcard by Sam Moree that he and Sarah enlarged to create the canvas backdrop for the play.
Visit a volcanic string of islands, Beotia, Media, and Xuxu, each existing in different time zones, threatened with attacks from the others, each ruled by morphing couples, Euredice and Orpheus, Kara and Jim, and Charlotte and Dr. Fricassee, all three connected by an underground network ruled by a sorrowful Mole King. For all his sorrow will he ever achieve forgiveness?
The subtitle for this piece is Hermaphroditism Through the Ages.
We played pre-performance canned music: "The Lap of the Gods" by Freddie (Mercury) Bulsara.
