Death and the Ploughman

directed by Peter S. Case

Actor/director Peter S. Case, a Resident Artist of La MaMa ETC and member of the Great Jones Repertory, will stage his own five-character theatrical adaptation of "Death and the Ploughman" (Der Ackermann aus Bohmen, 1400) by Johannes von Saaz in La MaMa's First Floor Theater. The adaptation, based on the 1947 English translation by K.W. Maurer, is a prose poem that is stunningly lyrical, with a highly polished rhetoric and cadence. The staging will be abundant in music and movement, with imagery drawn from medieval illuminated manuscripts and paintings of Bosch and Breughel.
