Creepy, Dark & Quite Amazing: Son of Semele Does 365 for One More Night
Like Circle X, the theatre troupe, Son of Semele (as in Dionysius the God) took 7 of Suzan-Lori Parks plays influenced by the War in Iraq to another level. In a small narrow room that is the theatre's house, the audience is whirled into worlds of chaos, confusion and dark enchantment.
Usually, plays in this year-round 365 Days/365 Plays festival last about 20 minutes. Son of Semele took the plays in a lengthy direction, methodically displaying the relevance of these short dramas in 2007 with multi-media and dance. All extremely captivating.
LAist Recommends: 365 Days/365 Plays @ Son of Semele. Tonight only, two showings at 4 and 8 p.m. FREE. Call ahead to reserve a spot, but not neccessary (chance it). Parking is best found to the east of the theatre.
