Obie, From Off-Broadway

Set in 15th century Constantinople. Getting riches, religion and love in the turbulent and doomed queen of cities, 15th -century Constantinople. This exiciting play has had three New York productions and won Obie awards for two actresses in the fabulously rich part of St. Mary of Egypt.
"This is poetry, not naturalism. Miss Owens, with her anthropological bent, explores cultures and myths and primitive rites and mixes them in a heady, sensuous brew unlike any other writer I know. She is an original and I find her work fascinating. IST SFI Standard-FL Standard No Maybe No No It 11671 Title Short Play Dramatic Comedy Bare Stage/Simple Set Unique and thought provoking with an ideal mixture of comedy and absurdist theatre. It begins with a solitary man standing in the center. He is tagged and proclaimed it" by a younger man who darts onto the stage. The Man then sets out to either discover what "it" is or, if nothing else, to pass "it" off on someone else. The audience shares the confusion and frustration the Man feels, but the pieces eventually come together so that the mysterious nature of "it" becomes quite clear.
