Someone Says You're in the Wrong Place My Friend, You Better Leave



Someone Says You're in the Wrong Place My Friend, You Better Leave

Inspired by Things We'd Rather Not Say Aloud for Legal Purposes

Wednesday, December 10th

Free

Presented as part of the MISC Film and Performance Festival

A blurb about the show:

Someone Says You're in the Wrong Place My Friend, You Better Leave was developed for the NYSG as a roving performance piece that loops three times through the gallery. It follows the stories of five characters we would be unlikely to meet in the same place at the same time (except perhaps in a Dylan song): a biblical Cain-turned-clown, a rainbow-obsessed Ophelia, Einstein in Robin Hood tights and in the throws of discovery, a doe-eyed Cinderella, and a Fortuneteller with a penchant for spitting and never quite closing up shop. As the characters' stories move them from place to place, the audience is free to follow (or not) in whichever order they choose, creating a self-directed piece of interactive theater.
