The Argument, based on both Aristotle's Poetics and the essays of Gerald F. Else, is a passionate student's love-letter and farewell to his teacher -- reminding us of the personal pathos that binds us to the Greeks, and firing us up to capture that chimera, art. This acclaimed solo play is written and performed by the virtuosic David Greenspan. Dinner Party, an artful and loose adaptation of Plato's Symposium (c. 360 BCE), takes on love from every angle, delving into the original text with gusto to bring out the philosophy and lust, language and appetite, the abstract challenges to our dearly held prejudices -- not to mention the really good wine. Running in repertory with As Yet Thou Art Young and Rash.
