Due to Events
Co-written with Jean Ann Douglass
Due to Events tells the story of Hero, a woman under house arrest, and her Lawyer who travels the world trying to find information that will set her free. Hero finds herself spending so much time with her Cat that perhaps she'll finally decide on a name for her, or at least listen to the plays the Cat's been writing. Meanwhile, a man named Voiceover provides ruminations on the expansion of the universe, the exciting possibilities of doing nothing, and the impossibility of telling a "whole story”.
The first full length production of Human Head Performance Group, Due to Events premiered at The Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY, in 2016. The production was co-directed by Jean Ann Douglass and Eric John Meyer.
Praise for Due to Events
"An atmospheric treat...equal parts self-guided meditation and Tom Waits daydream." -Theater is Easy
"Terrific and very funny...if elements that would be at home in Kafka, Stoppard, and perhaps even Donnie Darko filtered through a cat with a hobby in jazzy performance art sounds like a fun time, it is.” -Culture Catch
