“A stage space has two rules: (1) Anything can happen and (2) Something must happen.” ― Peter Brook
And that is what The Four Disgracers is all about. Four writers, taking their inspiration both from ancient myths and from the work of 16th century Dutch Engraver Friedrick Goltzius, have created contemporary re-visionings of familiar stories that make something happen.
From a man-child craving validation and the attention of his father to mobsters breaking bread, the stories of Phaeton, Ixion, Tantalus and Icarus find new life and new voice. Authors A.S. Freeman, O.G. Ueberoth, Sarah Hauck and Brad Rutledge have crafted their own new interpretations as they sought inspiration of art and story.
The show will perform at Art Alley in Lansing's revitalized REO Town. ( 1133 S. Washington Ave. , Lansing, Michigan 48910) May 15, 16, 17, 22 & 24 at 8 p.m. plus a matinee on the 24th at 4 p.m - $15. These have all been posted as events on the Ixion facebook page if you would like to share with friends.
Remember: Those that pledge at the $25 level or higher receive two tickets to the show and can reserve them for any performance night (as availability allows).
