March 9, 2012 by James
On Monday, March 25th, 2012 the BNH, Bohemian National Hall will be presenting a stage reading named “Krchen the Immortal”. The BNH, Bohemian National Hall is located at 321 East 73 St., in New York City. This event is scheduled to start at 7:30pm.
Krchen the Immortal written by Eva Malitit-Franova and directed by Marcy Arlin, is about an immortal, yet immoral, older man who does terrible things to his daughter, and in return, manages to create a great deal of chaos throughout his entire family. This play is presented as a metaphoric production highlighting the social problems and inequalities that existed during the communist occupation. This play is based on the Slovak society and is an outrageous comedy. After the stage reading is completed, well known translator and dramatist, Katerina Bohadlova will engage the audience for an in-depth questions period and discussion, partially based on the Slovak Theatre itself and based on education about events that occurred in the past.
This play is presented in cooperation with the Immigrants’ Theater Project, as well as the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York. This group is a non-profit company providing a theatrical voice for the marginalized that promotes intercultural relationships.
Brochure printing and stationery printing are probably produced on an on-going basis for this organization by local print companies. This stage reading is free to the public and everyone is welcome to attend, although a donation of $5.00 has been suggested by the organizers. For more information, please call 646-422-3399.
