|All That Fall

The play follows Maddy Rooney, an ancient woman "destroyed with sorrow and pining and gentility and church-going and fat and rheumatism and childlessness," on a perilous journey to the train station to meet her blind husband on his birthday (he "may be a hundred") and accompany him home through the wind and the rain. On the way she encounters a succession of vivid characters (All That Fall has the largest cast of any of Beckett's plays), most based on people Beckett knew in his youth. The play is a riotous, existential romp that is so rich with innuendo it has been called "a tour-de-force in audial pornography."

Kaliyuga Arts is proud to present a revival of one of the seminal works from the early days of off-off-Broadway. Gertrude Stein's fractured, evocative "A Circular Play" is set spinning by Al Carmines' wildly eclectic, disgracefully tuneful score in this enchanting 1968 OBIE Award-winner. In an atmosphere reminiscent of Stein's legendary salon at the rue de Fleurus in Paris during the years surrounding WWI, a circle of intimate friends create, share secrets, quarrel, endure tragedy, and ultimately help one another to survive in a world that keeps threatening to break apart. Book and lyrics by Gertrude Stein; Music by Al Carmines. Directed and with sets by John Sowle, choreographed and stage managed by Jack Dyville, costumes by Mike Floyd, lighting by Joe Novak, musical direction by Paul Boesing, and featuring an All-Equity cast including Anthony Wills Jr., Maureen Taylor, Meghan Hales, Michael Lazar, Noelle McGrath, Paul Boesing, Paul Lincoln, Robin Manning, Sarah Ferro, and Steven Patterson.
