WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Pinter and Perception begins with a introduction by director Todd Bauer, then the climatic scene from Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party is performed twice in immediate succession. First the roles of Goldberg and McCann are performed by non-disabled actors, and Stanley and Petey by disabled actors, and then again with the casting reversed. A post-performance discussion examines the role appearance and perception play with relation to disability, in the dynamic of theater, and in the roles we all inhabit in our lives.
