WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Garage Productions presents eight rework-in-progress showings of Spalding Gray?s OBIE-award winning solo performance Swimming to Cambodia. The show recounts how Spalding Gray landed a role in the film The Killing Fields and became deeply affected by the story of Dith Pran, a Cambodian photographer who risked his life to help New York Times journalist Sidney Schanberg tell the American people about their country's secret bombing of Cambodia. With wit and irony, Gray juxtaposes the surreal actor's "life on location" with the scenes of mass murder staged for the camera while searching for the Perfect Moment.
