Single Carrot Production, “Death of Walt Disney”
February 2 - February 25
During the month of February, the Single Carrot Theatre will showcase A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About THE DEATH OF WALT DISNEY.
Leave the magic behind in this darkly humorous, cutting examination of the megalomaniac who shaped a thousand childhoods: Mr. Walt Disney. The carefree and charming creator of so many beloved characters – father-figure to a generation of Americans – fades away as this fraught and fast-paced play chases down the dark heart of the Disney machine.
Power, betrayal, deception, and disillusionment weave together to form a portrait of a man so full of hubris and obsessed with his own legacy, he tried to remake the world and achieve immortality. Join us at the table. Regional premiere.
Written by Lucas Hnath, the performances will be directed by Genevieve de Mahy & Matthew Shea.
Running February 2–25 with shows Thursday- Saturday at 8 pm; and Sundays at 3 pm (No performance Sunday, February 4.) Single Carrot Theatre, 2600 N. Howard Street. Entrance on 26th Street with free parking available in adjacent lot and on the street.
