Add to Calendar 20-08-2011 26-08-2011 15 'A.' "A." (New York premiere) by Ayman Elmasry and Daniel Joseph Wolfe. Cabaret Theater. Saturday, August 20 at 7:00PM; Sunday, August 21 at 2:00PM; Wednesday, August 24 at 7:00PM; Thursday, August 25 at 7:00PM; Friday, August 26 at 7:00PM. Running Time: 45 minutes | Tickets: $12. Two students set out to stretch a canvas one lazy Saturday morning. The scene takes place in a campus art studio at 10:00 AM. The students share a class (World Novel after 1830) with Dr. Edmund Bengel, Jr., Associate Professor of English. As they attempt--and fail--to make a coherent whole of the canvas, the two students entertain themselves by recounting the events of the night before--that is, they talk about girls and the various obstacles they face in attaining their desired end. It remains unclear whether their desired end is a loving relationship built upon mutual respect, or undergraduate sex. The students also make misguided impersonations of their instructor, whose impressions intensify as they and the canvas unravel. This collaborative play is about the struggle of creation in the face of the countless theories, discourses, and rambles that comfort the confused in the confrontation of this Google-age. Ayman Elmasry was born in Tokyo, Japan on 25 November, 1986. Before settling in Fairfax, Virginia, he spent a good deal of his childhood in Fayoum, Egypt. Elmasry enjoys marathon running, oil painting, and playing piano. He currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he is a Ph.D. candidate in English and Comparative Literature at the University of Virginia. He is also completing his first major work of fiction called "The Whiteness of the Wal-Mart," a seven-hundred-plus page romance with introductions into Arab-American society. Daniel Joseph Wolfe grew up in West Baltimore with his three brothers, mother and father. He met Elmasry in college and their collaboration continues post graduation. He now lives in East Baltimore where he paints large format doodles, writes poetry, and is applying for graduate school. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=88589 Theater for the New City true DD/MM/YYYY
