Infringement Pick: He Who Gets Slapped
'He Who Gets Slapped' is Leonid Andreyev's best-known play. It tells the story of a famous writer who takes a job as a circus clown in order to escape his past. In this carnival of human outcasts, Andreyev fashions a meaningful portrait of an intellectual's struggle to exist in a world ruled by fate, chance, and the almighty dollar. This production will feature a bold and imaginative interplay between a revised version of the text and stylized interpretations of the carnival world in which it resides.
