PERPICH ARTS HIGH SCHOOL THEATER DEPARTMENT PRESENTS “TMORA, AND TMORA, AND TMORA”
April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Perpich Arts High School Theater Department is happy to present “TMORA, and TMORA, and TMORA”
Perpich theater students will be screening Anton Chekhov’s short story film adaptations and performing selected vignettes of Luigi Jannizzi’s Museum Plays. The selected vignettes have been recontextualized to fit specific works in The Museum of Russian Art and will be performed as Immersive theater with TMORA as the landscape of the production.
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904) was a Russian playwright and short-story writer who is considered to be one of the greatest writers of all time. His career as a playwright produced four classics, and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre.
Luigi Jannuzzi (November 12, 1952) is a contemporary American comedic playwright. A native of New Jersey, his plays Exhibit This! The Museum Comedies and You Make My Frame Shake! are the basis for recontextualization by Perpich Theater students. He is a recipient of two New Jersey State Council on the Art Fellowships, two Geraldine R. Dodge Grants, three National Endowments for the Humanities (2000 at Rutgers U,. 1998 at Columbia U., and 1995 at The U of Vermont), the 1986 Goshen Peace Prize, a 1998 and 2000 Finalist in the Eugene O’Neill National Playwriting Conference, and a 2007-2009 James Madison Grant at Princeton University.
