Black-Eyed Susan and Ben Forster will star in Liz One, a new performance written, directed and designed by John Jesurun, to play The Chocolate Factory, October 14-31.

The piece re-imagines Elizabeth I of England as revealed through her private diaries, inter-reacting with a kaleidoscopic array of ideas and characters as she struggles with a revolving set of presences to disentangle, un-write, and finally rewrite her own biography. The production features lighting design by Jeff Nash.

Throughout the run, The Chocolate Factory will also host After Image, a retrospective exhibit of Jesurun's set and video designs spanning over twenty-five years of work. The photographic history features a wide range of performers including David Cale, Steve Buscemi, Neil Greenberg, Ethyl Eichelberger, John Kelly, Hideo Kanze, Black-Eyed Susan, and Jeff Buckley. Among the photographers represented will be Paula Court, Irene Young, Kirk Winslow, Peter Cunningham, John Dugdale, and Naoko Tamura.
