Cross the threshold to Cleveland's up-close, personal and intimate theatre.
Opening August 20th:
a dark comedy by Elizabeth Meriwether
directed by Tom Kondilas
August 20- September 11
An unlikely and uncomfortable friendship exists between old-man alcoholic Jasper and socially awkward 17-year-old Oliver Parker. Living in squalor in a decrepit New York apartment owned by Oliver, Jasper just wants to be left alone -- but Oliver, determined to use the apartment in his quest to get laid, loses patience with his pathetic existence very quickly. Shady dealings involving a grieving politician and her ambitious assistant Agnes only increase the tension between them, and soon buried shame and secrets bubble to the surface. Sharply funny and keenly tragic, Oliver Parker! is anything but a typical coming-of-age story.

What if theatre weren't a mirror reflecting the familiar, but an opening into unknown territory? What if there were no fourth wall?
What if, instead of going to the theatre to watch a play, you crossed the threshold into the world of the play to experience it?
Theatre that expands the imagination and extends the conventional boundaries of language, structure, space, and performance that challenges the conventional notions of what theatre is.
What sort of theatre would this be?
