Could you tell your life story in the space of a moment; the length of a sonnet? Somewhere between life and afterlife, a group of strangers come together. One man, who has been waiting for them, informs them they have one final chance to tell their stories, and that their words will go out to the universe. One by one, they take the stage and give their testimony, and one by one, they are changed. A deceptively simple work, Jose Rivera’s Sonnets for an Old Century is an homage to ordinary souls with extraordinary stories to tell; a collection of monologues illustrating the glory, as well as the horror, of being human.
Ticket prices are $10.
Reservations are recommended.
