a Philadelphia Premiere by Doug Wright directed by Blanka Zizka
June 4 – July 5, 1997
It is 1807 and a notorious writer has been locked away in a lunatic asylum outside of Paris. Despite the institution’s desperate attempts to quell his quill, he goes to unimaginable lengths to pen his fantastical tales, much to his captors’ chagrin. A 1996 Obie Award-winning Off-Broadway hit, this outrageous new American comedy celebrates the irrepressibility of the creative spirit.
