WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

If Lewis Carroll had met Robert Johnson, it would have been at Klub Ka, the world imagined in Klub Ka, The Blues Legend, a play with classic Delta blues written by two-time Obie winner James V. Hatch and prize-winning poet Suzanne Noguere. The play is a mythical journey into the Underworld by a teenage girl who deals with the demon of sexual abuse and longs to be a poet. Her quest leads her into a variety of encounters, from the laugh-out-loud funny to get-goosebumps eerie. The play is adapted from "The Stone House, A Blues Legend," a fairy tale for adults by Hatch and Noguere. It is conceived as an "Alice in Wonderland" fairy tale with music, reflecting on both the psychological process of recovery from early trauma and the cathartic effect of Blues and poetry. The production features blues performed by Kevin "B.F." Burt and original music composed by Christa Victoria. Tisch Jones directs.
