The Nanjing Race

by Reggie Cheong-Leen
directed by Brian Tom O’Connor


New York Premiere
Philip, a Japanese-American businessman, comes to Nanjing China in 1988. Yu Ahn, a hotel “floor-boy” befriends Philip in the hope of being sponsored to go to America. But it is Bao, another floor-boy, who intrigues Philip. Trapped in their social and racial identities, the three men struggle to come to terms with their desires and prejudices. Funny, dramatic and deeply moving, The Nanjing Race depicts an intimate culture-clash at an intriguing moment in recent Chinese history.

January 21 — February 13
How I Fell in Love
by Joel Fields
directed by Jules Ochoa

New York Premiere
Jules Ochoa (Phantom Killer, 2010) returns to direct this delightful romantic comedy, winner of the 2009 Christopher Brian Wolk Award, in which two lost souls haplessly seek romance as they stumble into adulthood. When they accidentally find their way into each other’s lives, they discover that their individual stories may be more intertwined than they could have ever imagined… and they start to question the meaning of fate, friendship, and true love.

March 25 — April 17
Summer in Sanctuary

by Al Letson
directed by Rob Urbinati

New York Premiere
Told through monologue, song, poetry, and multimedia, this autobiographical piece by performance poet/playwright Al Letson challenges perceptions about race and class, as he recounts his struggles to connect with the disadvantaged children of the Sanctuary in Jacksonville, Florida. Summer in Sanctuary will take you into the heart of a community, and leave you with a better understanding of the world. Rob Urbinati, who helmed Foggy Bottom and The President and Her Mistress in our 2006/7 season, is back to direct this funny, poignant, and ultimately inspiring piece of distinctly American theater.

Odyssey Storytelling CRAZY FOR YOU: AN EVENING ABOUT INSANITY

      Odyssey Storytelling  CRAZY FOR YOU: AN EVENING ABOUT INSANITY

      Mercury is retrograde, it’s a full moon and many of you received 3 emails from me today about last month’s storytelling.  It seems that our server was not working and stored them all up . . . until today.

      Luckily, the next Odyssey Storytelling is Crazy for You: An Evening about Insanity — Stories of the mad, insane, and whacky. The eccentric family member.   The psychotic boyfriend.   The off-the wall teacher.   The nonsensical red-tape. Finding yourself in a ridiculous or unimaginable situation.   Falling crazy in love .   Bizarre fanaticism.   Looney ideas and dreams.   Reasons for (or against) Prozac, Valium, Lithium, and Ritalin. The people and things that drive you crazy.
      The show is on Thursday, September 2 at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) at the Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.  Tickets $7 at the door or you can buy them HERE.
For a fun evening, have dinner before or after the show at the Cup Cafe (reservations recommended: 798-1618) in the historic Hotel Congress OR at the new Maynard’s Market and Kitchen on Toole Ave in the Historic Train Depot (reservations recommended: 545-0577). 
NOTE: We no longer reserve seats at the show.  Doors open at 6:30. Free parking on the street after 5 p.m.
