THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER: THE CATHARSIS OF PATHOS

Genre: Drama
by Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell with music by Michael Wells directed by Lee Sunday Evans and Jordan Seavey

Award-winning ensemble CollaborationTown (The Play About My Dad, The Momentum, 6969) invites you to the World Premiere of THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER: THE CATHARSIS OF PATHOS by Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell with music by Michael Wells. An acclaimed 2006 production of this Brecht satire won an Outstanding Playwrighting Award at FringeNYC.

Before Mother Courage there was Mother LaMadre. In THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER, an unrivaled masterpiece of modern dramatic writing, our antiheroine Mother LaMadre and her rag-tag crew drag their wagon through the Fifth World War and the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland that is New Europe. Together they must navigate all the pitfalls (and rewards) of the dramatic art of drama to find the few remaining books the art-abolishing Evil Empire have yet to destroy and maybe find a way to replace violence with art. If the zombies don't eat them first, that is.

Directed by Lee Sunday Evans and Jordan Seavey, the production stars Jordan Barbour, Carly Cioffi, Nick Choksi, John Halbach, Boo Killebrew, Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell, Chinasa Ogbuagu, Phillip Taratula, Emily Walton and TJ Witham with set and props by Deb O, costumes by Nikki Moody, lighting by Nick Houfek, sound by Brandon Wolcott and Daniel Kluger, music direction by Michael Wells, associate music direction by Nicholas Williams, and stage management by Kaitlin Nemeth.
