Howard Barker's two poems for the stage examine human polarization, cruelty and self-determination. Gary the Thief, starring Robert Emmet Lunney (Broadway's The Graduate, The Europeans with PTP/NYC), presents a character in self-exploration whose definition of himself is in direct opposition to the 'crowd'. Plevna: Meditations on Hatred, starring Alex Draper (Terrorism with New Group, Scenes From An Execution and No End of Blame with PTP/NYC), explores the legacy of cultural conflict through the ages. Running time is 70 minutes.
