THE MOTHER OF INVENTION

By James Lecesne

World Premiere

When Dottie Nerber’s son and daughter arrive to pack up the contents of their mother’s Florida home, their conflicting memories of her collide. As the siblings unpack family secrets, they must separate fact from fiction and are forced to question the narratives of their own lives. James Lecesne’s new full-length play, THE MOTHER OF INVENTION, is an unflinching and comedic look at how one family deals with the effects of Alzheimer’s. It questions why we tell the stories we do about the people we love, and how we live with those stories after they’ve been debunked.

CHESS MATCH No. 5

conceived by Anne Bogart

text arranged by Jocelyn Clarke from public conversations with John Cage

created by SITI Company

World Premiere

CHESS MATCH is a new play based on text from the many public conversations with American composer, writer, artist, and philosopher John Cage. Two actors embody the phenomenon of a long-term relationship going well, going awry, in battle, in love, in reconciliation, torn apart and put back together again over the course of a single night and a chess game. Dense and humorous, graceful and penetrating, this is SITI Company at its most relatable and profound.

THE BOY WHO DANCED ON AIR

music by Tim Rosser

book and lyrics by Charlie Sohne

New York Premiere

THE BOY WHO DANCED ON AIR is a modern-day love story set in rural Afghanistan. Paiman and Feda have spent their young lives as dancers in the world of bacha bazi, where wealthy men take in boys from poor families, train them to dance at parties, and often abuse them. The two boys’ chance meeting changes the course of their lives and sets them on a journey to find their independence in this musical fable about love, tradition, morality and the strength of the human spirit.
