Description:

THE STORIES: UP, DOWN, STRANGE, CHARMED, BEAUTY, AND TRUTH. A pair of teenage sisters struggle to escape their drug-addled mother with help from their favorite down-on-his-luck uncle. Thanks to a series of wholly organic yet startlingly unexpected plot twists, neither the characters nor their situations are how they seemed when the play began. (1 man, 2 women.) LILA ON THE WALL. Journalist Lila must investigate a three-month-old story about a woman who saw Jesus’ face on a graffiti-laden wall. But the woman who saw it is off on a tour in Italy, and Carl, a young cameraman who prides himself in figuring out “emotional landscapes,” is determined to make Lila believe in something again. (1 man, 1 woman.) MAFIA ON PROZAC. Jay and Tee are a couple of hit-men sitting by the ocean and reflecting on how their lives turned out. Their intended victim, Matt, awaits his fate in a burlap sack. When Al Capone visits in a dream, the outraged and desperate Matt gets dragged into refereeing the hit-men’s argument about the mob’s future. (3 men.)

In Praise Of Copying

Description:

German critic Walter Benjamin wrote some immensely influential words on the work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction. Luxury fashion houses would say something shorter and sharper and much more legally binding on the rip-off merchants who fake their products. Marcus Boon, a Canadian English professor with an accessible turn of phrase, takes us on an erudite voyage through the theme in a serious but engaging encounter with the ideas of thinkers as varied as Plato, Hegel, Orson Welles, Benjamin, Heidegger, Louis Vuitton, Takashi Murakami and many more, on topics as philosophically taxing and pop-culture-light as mimesis, Christianity, capitalism, authenticity, Uma Thurman's handbag and Disneyland.
