Presented by Torn Space Theater
Genre: Experimental Theater
As part of both the Buffalo Infringement Festival and Torn Space Theater's Sizzling Hot Summer series, TST, is proud to present, 'He Who Gets Slapped', but Leonid Andreyev. 'He Who Gets Slapped' is Andreyev's best-known play. It tells the story of a famous writer who takes a job as a circus clown in order to escape his past. In this carnival of human outcasts, Andreyev fashions a meaningful portrait of an intellectual's struggle to exist in a world ruled by fate, chance, and the almighty dollar. This production will feature a bold and imaginative interplay between a revised version of the text and stylized interpretations of the carnival world in which it resides.
"He Who Gets Slapped" is produced by Torn Space Theater as part of the 2012 Buffalo Infringement Festival.
