Extremely Public Displays of Privacy: Act 1, Extremely Public
Philadelphia Live Arts & Philly Fringe
Portions free/ongoing, portion ticketed/short-term
September 2 to October 1, all hours
Fess and Beatrix meet online, where nothing is quite as it seems. In the real world, Fess is a mother and a school teacher who writes amazing songs that nobody hears. Beatrix is a performance artist and mysterious entrepreneur, manipulative in ways Fess can't possibly anticipate. Beatrix sweeps Fess off her feet and into a surreal landscape that quickly becomes all too extremely public. Part musical, part illusion, part real-life drama, Extremely Public Displays of Privacy is a performance adventure in three acts.
