The Adventures of Archy and Mehitabel
Directed by Danie Mainwaring
In a deserted office, a cockroach dives headfirst onto the keys of a typewriter, pouring out the ruminations of his soul. It's "archy" (he's too small to hold down the shift key), poet, philosopher, moralist and futile worshipper of "mehitabel," the alley cat. This bizarre, highly original performance takes us into the streets of the big city as archy tries hopelessly to bring the "toujours gai" mehitabel off the back fence and into a respectable home as a housecat. Versatile actors play the various urbane, non-human city dwellers we encounter along the way, suggesting their animal characteristics without explicit costumes. A true gem of forgotten literature, Archy & Mehitabel is a show not to be overlooked.
Showtimes are December 9th - 11th and 16th - 18th.
