Dialogue with Three Chords stage Pulp plays with barbarians, muses, and their problematic authors
By: Dialogue with Three Chords
SHE WROTE 'I LOVE YOU' ON THE WALL OF DEATH! is described by Gracia as "a collection of pulp themed works about barbarians, muses, and the times when 'representation' in literature was either villainous or tragic." In "A Brow Like Shakespeare and a Face Like Satan or The Life and Death of a Profoundly Unremarkable Man," British Pulp author Sax Rohmer spends the last few moments of his life reckoning with his racist legacy.
"I Have Known Many Grim and Loveless Gods", author Robert E. Howard and his creation Conan the Barbarian have what Gracia deems "a 'True West' style argument" in the kitchen of their mother's Texas home. "All The Damnable Things I ain't" travels to Scotland where a pulp writer sits in a pub and contemplates the worthlessness of his art as his muse chides him and a young woman challenges him.
Gracia and LoPorto co-founded D3C at Mr. Dennehy's in 2011. Previous D3C shows have featured musicians, poets, and burlesque performers. They've also partnered with local independent theatre groups such as BrooklynONE to produce innovative and challenging free theatre to New York City, and will expand their theatrical reach to include a special performance in Hoboken before the end of 2019
SHE WROTE 'I LOVE YOU' ON THE WALL OF DEATH! features: Anthony DeVito, Ramona Floyd, Gaby Fraser, Simon Fraser, Arthur Krivkily, Edie Nugent, Mickey Ryan, and Tina Wong-Lu.
