AVANT BARD’S SCRIPTS IN PLAY FESTIVAL: The Figs by Doug Robinson

Friday, November 18, 7:30pm // Sunday, November 20, 2:00pm

MoCA Arlington is pleased to host Arlington’s Avant Bard Theatre company for its Scripts in Play Festival! Join Avant Bard and Randy Baker for staged readings of The Figs by Doug Robinson in the Tiffany Gallery. Audience members are invited to provide feedback and perspectives to the playwright after the initial reading on Friday. Come back for Sunday’s reading to see if the playwright made your suggested changes. This program is free. Registration is encouraged.

About The Figs

The Figs is a very loose adaptation of a 19th century Bavarian folk tale of the same name. The Figs is a play about the nature of storytelling and the tellers of stories. With a Mad King obsessed with figs, a headstrong Princess in love with an innkeeper, a boy whose only friend is a swan, and a storyteller with many tricks up their sleeve, The Figs is a call for audiences to remember the wonder held inside a good story.

NO GRIDS NO MASTERS: a Post-Cartesian Experiment is an exploration and contestation of the grid and the structured set of worldviews that are embedded in it.

Clarissa Pezone: The Woods of No Name

March 30 - May 26, 2024

In Clarissa Pezone’s figurative installations, the artist utilizes the qualities of clay to evoke the uncanny in otherworldly and unsettling scenes. For The Woods of No Name, Pezone has created a new installation that explores the concept of limbo–what the artist describes as “the mystic space that exists between reality and the unknown.”
