Artword Theatre: Charly’s Piano w. Charly Chiarelli, Wed & Thurs May 17 & 18

Wednesday May 17 and Thursday May 18, 2017, at 8 pm, pwyc/$10. Artword Theatre presents Charly’s Piano, a new work-in-progress. A young man looking for work in 1971, a psychiatric hospital, and a piano. Performed by Charly Chiarelli. Written by Charly Chiarelli and Ronald Weihs.

This is the fourth in a series of monthly theatre projects-in-progress, with Artistic Director Ronald Weihs. The February edition (#1) was Langston Hughes vs Joe McCarthy, a reading based on testimony from the interrogation in 1953 interspersed with some of his poems. The March edition (#2) was Mind Wars: a theatre exploration about the 1960s, when politics became a struggle over reality and perception, with readings from actual testimony and interviews of the Yippies, Black Activists, the CIA, the FBI. The April edition (#3) was The Man in the Vault by Ronald Weihs, a staged reading of a new script based on actual events. The play explores how a CIA counter-intelligence scandal in the 1960s telescopes into the present. What is the truth? How do you know if you have found it?
