I will be reading for the role of Mike Rivera in Terminal 4 by Catherine Fletcher, developed during her residency at the La MaMa Umbria International Playwright Retreat 2016, at the La MaMa Playwrights Showcase this weekend. The reading, directed by Richard Caliban, will take place at 7:30pm on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at the La MaMa Galleria (47 Great Jones St. between Bowery and Lafayette). Admission is free. More information on La MaMa Umbria Celebrates 2017 here.
Terminal 4 is an absurdist dramedy work-in-progress that depicts seven individuals trapped at an international airport in the American Midwest during the course of a single day. Hailing from a range of cultural and economic backgrounds, the characters' lives grind to a halt through a seeming combination of a blizzard and technical failures. Interwoven with monologues by the Chorus as well as chatter from air traffic control, the play's action gradually becomes derailed as the actors playing the characters refuse to act as scripted and blur the boundaries between what's real and what's not.
