Convergence-Continuum will be kicking off its 2014 season with the Cleveland premiere of Kira Obelensky’s “Lobster Alice”. The play is set in 1946. Alice Horowitz is a low level secretary. John Finch is an animator who is working on Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland”. Their lives are turned upside down when Salvador Dali arrives at the studio with plans to work on a short animated film. In the course of his short visit, Dali shocks the conservative Finch, Alice becomes the “girl down the rabbit hole” and both Alice and Finch learn of love in its most surreal terms.
“Lobster Alice” is directed by convergence-continuum’s Artistic Director, Clyde Simon, and features company actors Tim Coles, Grey Cross, Beau Reinker and newcomer to the Liminis stage, Sarah Hess as Alice.
“Lobster Alice” will play from Friday, March 14, 2014 through Saturday, April 5, 2014 and runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. at the Liminis, 2438 Scranton Rd., Cleveland, OH 44113 in the historic Tremont neighborhood.
Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors and $10 for students. Reservations and information are available at convergence-continuum.org or 216-687-0074.
“Lobster Alice” is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, and by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
