Sticky Time: Crowded Fire Theater Workshop Reading

***PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE***

 

Please join us for a script-in-hand workshop of a new play by Marilee Talkington. Sticky Time is a rich, experimental, cross-disciplinary theatrical look at the birth, life, and possible death of time. When twins are created from a Big Bang, they seek to discover their origins before being pulled back into the black hole of “un-time.” Through the use of fugue-like language and beautiful unconventional movement, we witness the twins concurrently living in the present, past, and future, each attached to Time’s wild fractured narrative. A 2010 MacDowell Fellow and one of only two legally blind actors in the country to receive an MFA in acting, Marilee Talkington creates a powerful experiential world on stage in her newest creation with San Francisco’s Crowded Fire Theater and Vanguardian Productions.

Participating actors—all Crowded Fire Resident Artists—will include Michele Leavy, Rami Margron, Lawrence Radecker, and Mollena Williams.
