March 29 – April 1: DISPOSABLE MEN*April 5 – 6: RAPT Performance
*April 17 – 29: DRUM OF THE WAVES OF HORIKAWA
Hello there. This is Perishable Theatre’s Development Intern, Jay M. I am a student in the MFA Performance and Society Program at Rhode Island College and a resident of Providence. I regret to inform you that Mulchie is no longer with us. He was carried off by a California condor the other day. Don’t ask me to explain how that happened or what a condor was doing in Rhode Island. The point is that Mulchie is gone and I will be taking over the newsletter. So break out your calendars and mark this stuff down.
This show is created and performed by HERE Arts Resident Artist James Scruggs. The performance runs March 29th thru April 1st. This is a multimedia piece which illustrates the sometimes hilarious and often tragic depiction of African-American men being viewed as expendable. For more information on DISPOSABLE MEN, go to http://disposablemen.org. Tickets are available at http://www.arttixri.com or by calling (401) 621-6123. Tickets are $20 General and $15 Students/Seniors/Military.
