In Losing Something, a man drifts inexorably into middle age. As he ineptly attempts to account for his past, the drift accelerates into a headlong plummet. Hobbled by the limitations of memory, he is confronted and confounded by the people he lost: his best friend, the victim of an ambiguous suicide attempt, the lover who initiated him into the darker side of sex, and his partners in a short-lived, clumsy ménage a trois. But as the only eyewitness to his own life, he is the least reliable witness of all.
A ghost play like no other, this darkly humorous yet profoundly moving theatrical event explores the impact of the loss of love, youth and ultimately of life. But death is not the end of the story...
Like the complex relationships between memory, perception and reality, the events on stage are a mix of illusion and reality. Losing Something features the North American theatrical premiere of Eyeliner technology, provided by 3-Legged Dog's Danish partners, Vision 4. Eyeliner is a new and unique high definition video projection system that allows spectacular and convincing 3-D moving images on a live stage. A high tech adaptation of the old stage trick, Peppers Ghost, Eyeliner produces high-resolution images of such striking quality that it is difficult to distinguish video from reality. This technology, which was featured on the Grammy Awards in a performance by Madonna and the Gorillaz, has never been seen before on the U.S. theatrical stage.
Written, directed and designed by Kevin Cunningham, founder and Executive Artistic Director of 3-Legged Dog. The cast includes Aldo Perez, Michael Bell, Victoria Chamberlin, Catherine Yeager and Livia DiPaoli.
