THIS JUNE, LEAP
AND THE NET WILL APPEAR!

“In this play, we contain secret selves and animals inside us.
In an instant, 20 years can pass. We travel the world while
standing perfectly still.”
 

Chana on imagining the world as she wants it to be
Chana on Surrealism
Chana on fluidity

Up next: we present LEAP AND THE NET WILL APPEAR by Chana Porter, directed by Tara Ahmadinejad, with music by Andrew Lynch.  And I am so excited.

We’ve been planning this production for almost two years.  It’s always a thrill to take such a potentially transformative step with artists, especially a playwright and director who approach the work as openly and adventurously as Chana and Tara do.  They’re values-driven artists, we’re values-driven producers, and our collaboration is proving as buoyant an experience as the play itself.

Through a voracious ride of transformation, LEAP asks us to suspend the world we know in order to envision the world as it might be. It steps to an accelerated time signature which transforms time and space in the blink of an eye; it rests in the sudden overwhelm of a tender song.  Chana is a singular thinker whose surreal narrative can’t obscure a compassionate heart.  And oh, her language!   We’re excited to invite you along, and thrilled to be back in The Sam at The Flea, with a wonderful cast and production team.

Tickets are on sale May 8.  It’s a deliciously short run, so plan ahead!  I can’t wait to share LEAP with you!

Here’s another secret.
What happens when Margie (raised to be a good girl; wants to be a lion) leaves home: twenty years whiz by like a moving train, logic and time escape their usual confines, steaks are eaten, tuxes are worn, the world expands, people transform, there is a rule that is breaking.  In a world that is close to ours but is not ours, lions run with limitless grace, we all eat cake, have some champagne.
