Theater Ninjas are touring Northeastern Ohio this Fall to present Obie Award-winning playwright Erin Courtney's "Black Cat Lost," a tragicomic collage of loss, remembrance and transcendence.
"I love this play because of its fascinating shape. It weaves together so many different ideas, art forms and raw expression with rhythm and energy," said Artistic Director Jeremy Paul. "It's constantly moving, evolving without losing its simplicity or its sincerity."
Throughout the performance, the audience will be invited to participate in different activities and games that deepen the experience of the show. Each performance of "Black Cat Lost" will be shaped by the audience's own memories, thoughts and voices.
Select nights of "Black Cat Lost" will be followed by Associate Artistic Director Ray Caspio and composer Sean Ellis performing a brief cabaret of songs inspired by Weimar Berlin.
"Black Cat Lost" stars Ray Caspio, Lauren Joy Fraley and Sarah Moore. It will be performed:
Oct. 24 through 28, at Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Road in Cleveland;
Oct. 31 through Nov. 4, at 78th Street Studios -- Survival Kit, 1300 West 78th St. in Cleveland; and
Nov. 7 through 9 at Summit Artspace, 140 East Market St., second Floor, in Akron.
