A'Spress at The Red Room
The Rising Sun Performance Company present a workshop production of A'Spress, by Adam Purvis, at the Red Room from 4 - 14 Nov 2007.
A'Spress: Set in the stark landscape of the New York City Subway; Aï¿½Spress is the story of two unlikely companions struggling to survive, one with a guilt ridden conscience and dark past, the other living in a world that few can comprehend.
While each anti-hero is besieged by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, they are left with no choice but to depend on one another. Jack, a recovering addict, is running from a tragic mistake leaving him to care for Benji, an autistic man with no understanding of the reality facing them both. But Benji isnï¿½t the only one that needs saving. As Jack fights to outrun his demons, he discovers that Benjiï¿½s need for him may only be outweighed by his own need for Benji.
Directed by Akia, A'Spress will be performed by the ensemble of the Rising Sun Performance Company.
