Staged Reading; Dog in the Night

THIS IS A DONATION ONLY EVENT SUGGESTED $15 AT THE DOOR OR $5 FOR STUDENTS

The New American Drama Series is back with more staged readings of award-winning contemporary drama.

2/5: “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time”, Simon Stephen’s Tony Award-winning poetic and ultimately joyous tale of a brilliant autistic boy’s journey of self-discovery. Professional actors team up with students from the DSU Department of Theatre under the direction of Kathryn Mederos Syssoyeva for this series of staged readings, presenting cutting-edge, award-winning drama by contemporary American playwrights. Ranging from realism to the absurd, pathos to dark comedy, these plays engage some of our most urgent social concerns – the demise of industry, the vanishing middle class, race relations, social fragmentation, global warming…. Performed in an intimate theatrical setting, each reading is preceded by a presentation on the playwright, and followed by a conversation between audience, cast, and director to tease out the themes these of rich new works and draw connections to our own social and political realities.

Knowing that the presence of art in our lives is essential, we are re-opening our doors in a healthy, safe way. The state may be at the Yellow Phase but we are maintaining the more strict Orange Phase Guidelines for Theaters.

Re-opening guidelines for all performances at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta:

  1. Social distance seating between all ticket groups (SEE SEAT MAP TO LEFT) Please purchase tickets in groups of two or more with family and friends if possible
  2. Temperature checks of all performers before each performance
  3. Mandatory mask wearing for all audience members and front of house staff
  4. Multiple hand sanitizing stations in the Center
  5. Disinfectant cleaning of theater seats, lobby and rest room surfaces after each performance
  6. Cash free transactions, we encourage online ticket purchases directly on our site.

    “Only when we all feel safe will we be able to free our spirits to participate with the art being performed.”
