About This Show

On the first anniversary of James Dean’s untimely death, he reappears to his former dance teacher, Eartha Kitt. She, then, guides Jamie, as he was known to her, on a spiritual odyssey through his short life. The journey moves from California ‘s tranquil beaches through Indiana’s tribal farms and cemeteries into the neon lit streets and spot lit theatres of New York City with a brief layover in an angel-less Hollywood before a return to the marbled family cemetery in Indiana for Jamie’s eternal sleep.

Jamie…another side of Dean portrays the Dante-esque journey for love, truth, and faith of the American icon James Dean. This six-character one-act is a surrealistic drama that powerfully blends elements of the Quaker faith, in which Dean was raised; African dance; and Brechtian constructs into a dreamlike theatrical experience. Written and directed by George R. Carr.

Recommended for ages: 18 and up
