Beau O’Reilly and his cohorts from the Curious Theater Branch present Samuel Beckett’s 1956 one-act radio play, All That Fall. The play follows Maddy Rooney as she walks to meet her husband’s train on his birthday, but becomes a complex psychological journey through life and death, past and present, age and youth, art and nature, and man’s fallen, or falling state.

    Current Exhibition
    Jan 12, 2017 – May 26, 2017

    This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
