Production History

A Carlin Home Companion  | Open: 10/11/13 Close: 10/18/13
 

Deftly weaving her amusing yet poignant family stories with classic video footage of her father’s career and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions and pulls back the curtain on their life together off stage. Chronicling over forty years of her life with her father, Kelly warmly yet honestly reveals not only what it was like to be swept up by his life and career, but the struggles of their father/daughter relationship and ultimately what it took for Kelly to find her own place in the world.  See more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/a-carlin-home-companion/

A Little Potato and Hard to Peel  | Open: 10/20/13 Close: 10/27/13
 

In his warm, smart, and engaging autobiographical solo show, David Harrell delivers a hilarious and insightful look at living with a disability. He was born without his right hand. His parents, having never known anyone with a disability, promised he would never be different. He soon realizes, however, the metal hook he wears on his right hand does in fact make him feel different.  See more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/a-little-potato-hard-to-peel/

Another Medea  | Open: 10/19/13 Close: 10/26/13
 

The incarcerated Marcus Sharp, a charismatic and enigmatic onetime New York actor, recounts in gruesome detail how his obsessions with a wealthy doctor named Jason and the myth of Medea lead to horrific, unspeakable events.  This provocative, minimalist meta-monodrama is an examination of the use and prevalence of myth in our lives as well as the dangers in becoming too immersed in a role.  See showtimes and more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/another-medea/

Beyond Words  | Open: 10/12/13 Close: 10/19/13
 

One the most acclaimed multi-disciplinary artists in America today, Bill Bowers employs an eloquent mixture of music, monologues and mime in his on-going investigation of the silence surrounding the enigmatic matters of gender in our culture today.  Often compared to Chaplin and Keaton, he has performed throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. For Beyond Words, Bowers draws his characters from life and moves beyond mere anecdotes to create a vibrant and visual poetry.  See more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/beyond-words/

Knyum  | Open: 10/27/13 Close: 11/03/13
 

To supplement his meager artistic life, Guy works graveyard shifts at the Hotel East Houston in New York City. Between the hours of 11pm and 7am, the hotel lobby transforms into a theater for Guy’s dreams and nightmares. In this space, he encounters his parents, Ma and Ba and their stories of sacrifice as survivors of the genocide in Cambodia. The hours drudge on as Guy tries to find relative answers to the questions that plague him the most: Where are you from? Where are you going?  See more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/knyum/

Slut Energy Theory  | Open: 10/12/13 Close: 10/19/13
 

One woman’s story about abuse, laughter, life, & pushin’ on through to the other side. Told through music, spoken word and monologue, U’Dean Morgan speaks her mind as an elderly, yet ageless, woman whose harrowing life experiences have left her anything but speechless. From the opening song, she tells you exactly what she thinks about sex, heaven, lies, truth, you, herself and whatever else you might ask her – if you have the nerve!  See more at http://www.afofest.org/shows/slut-energy-theory/
