About this show

John Stark Productions presents the New York premiere of the late Jovanka Bach's Nightsong For the Boatman. John Stark directs. The play centers on aging, alcoholic, washed-up poet Harry Appleman. When he attempts suicide by jumping off a bridge, Harry is stopped by a sardonic boatman. The boatman wants Harry to give his life to the devil -- unless Harry wins a round of dice. After Harry loses, he must cross the River Styx or find a willing participant to go in his place.
