Directed by Elizabeth LeCompte and Ken Kobland. With Spalding Gray. The Wooster Group’s legendary 1977 experimental theatre production, in which co-writer Spalding Gray tried to make sense of his mother’s depression and suicide, is reconstructed in this new video that incorporates U-Matic video, Super-8 movies, reel-to-reel audio tapes, photos, and slides from the original groundbreaking show. The reimagining is haunted by Gray’s own death in 2004 (a presumed suicide). “This is not merely a document of something extraordinary. It is something extraordinary all on its own.” –Village Voice. Cleveland premiere. Special thanks to Clay Hapaz.
