Dixon Place presents
Created and performed by Nick Lewis & Emerie Snyder
Saturday, April 28th
Fact: The earliest metal-framed umbrellas were made using surplus steel ribs from corsets. Isn't it funny how the same things that hold you in, also hold the world out?
Umbrella Houses is a play about a man on a stage and a woman on the run, and how the things that protect you can just as easily collapse. He lives alone in an empty theatre--until he invents an audience to keep him company. She spends all her days traveling the world, sending gifts to random strangers who never write back. And you arrive just in time to see what happens when their paths collide.
Naturally, there will be a dance number. Dorothy and Scarecrow make an appearance, too.
Umbrella Houses will be performed on April 28th as part of Dixon Place's Works-in-Progress series. This is a one night only event, so get your TICKETS now!
ALSO! DRINKS! The Dixon Place Lounge is open before, during, and after the show. Proceeds directly support Dixon Place's artists and mission.
