INSIDE I hits 7 Stages Theatre 4/21-5/1
Don't miss it TONIGHT! OPENING NIGHT! Episodes of life and dreams, from birth to age 18, of a boy on the autistic spectrum and his obsession with, and escape into, the world of video. Visual spectacle, puppets, performers and live-feed cameras give voice and image to the spectrum’s unheard and unseen effects. Inside I is written and directed by Michael Haverty and Erwin Maas.
Each performance of Inside I will open with I Direct Myself, a 15-minute play written and performed by Sam Gross. Gross, who is on the autistic spectrum, has worked with 7 Stages for many years and was as inspired by Haverty’s production as Haverty was with Gross. Gross worked with 7 Stages staff and teaching artists over the last year to create this short play that sets out to communicate to the world that he is in control of his life and fully aware of his circumstances.
