Hook & Eye Invades The Flea
Hook & Eye is landing at The Flea with three outrageous new ideas to share. Echo & Narcissus is an early look at an original play we’re creating about a narcissistic soldier home from the Gulf War – a play about identity, responsibility, and community. Queer Black/Filipinx writer Roger Q. Mason delivers material from a new work in progress – a performance work about 1920s female impersonators inspired by a censored Mae West play. Eliza Bent leads a cast who tell a tale of the MTA’s wayward past and perhaps glorious future in the form of a subway ride. Each night, all three shows punctuated with out-of-this-world cosmic refreshments.
Performances start at 7 p.m.
