Project Arts Centre hosts Dublin Theatre Festival

Theatre

NEUTRAL HERO

Dates: 09 Oct - 12 Oct

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €25.00-30.00

Twelve characters to tell a story of epic ordinariness concerning a young man searching for his father in the wide open landscape of the American Midwest. Journeying through gas stations and drive-ins, family routines, work schedules, small-town dreams and desires, his Neutral Hero unearths an ancient stream of humanity.

Listed as one of The New York Times’  top 10 shows of 2012, Neutral Hero undertakes the seemingly impossible feat of portraying neutrality on stage. Maxwell employs the elemental materials of the theatre – text, movement, and music – and asks us to consider a world in which even the most humble existence is charged with something mythic and extraordinary.

A leading ensemble of the experimental downtown scene, New York City Players are celebrated for their unique style, championing the downbeats, the anti-heroes, the alienated and the outlaws.

“Mr. Maxwell’s great achievement as a writer her is that he makes the soaringly heroic feel like the natural and inevitable subtext of the numbingly quotidian”  The New York Times

CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE
There will be a post-show discussion with Richard Maxwell and members of the company following the performance on 10 October.
