This Was The End


February 21 – March 8, 2014


A performance in which four actors in their sixties (Black Eyed SusanPaul ZimetJames Himelsbach and Rae C Wright) attempt each night to arrive at the end of Uncle Vanya – in a last ditch effort to alter the outcome. It uses the play to pose a question about how memory functions in the formation of the future. In Chekhov’s play, Vanya asks – “What if I live to be 60?” This Was The End performs an answer. What do we do with our past? What can we make of it?
