Final Performances Of In Private and States of Exception Tonight

Tonight is the final concert reading of George Hunka's plays States of Exception and In Private at 8:00 p.m. at manhattan theatre source, 177 Macdougal Street. Admission is $15.

In In Private, a companion piece of sorts to his previously staged In Public, a man and a woman try to recreate and recapture a lost moment - and lost love - together through letter-writing correspondence.

In States of Exception, three estranged family members (two sisters and one brother) are confined to a penthouse apartment as riots from a civil war rage beneath them in the streets of a 21st century city. As the civilization beneath them completely falls apart, they're forced to take not-so-pleasant-but-absolutely-necessary strolls down Memory Lane.

As these plays are very much word plays, they work well being "heard" rather than "seen" (although I would like to see a fully realized production of both in the not-too-distant future).

More information can be found here. You can make reservations by calling (212) 501-4751.

Don't miss it.
