BEING BUKOWSKI (call 814-459-8215 for tickets)
AN EVENING OF SHORT STORIES AND POEMS BY CHARLES BUKOWSKI
Directed by Kim Mc (Co-Director of 2007 RockErie Music Awards)
Two weeks only
March 14th & 15th plus March 20th & 21th
The Roadhouse Theatre continues its Independent Stage Series with short stories and poems by “the laureate of American low life Charles Bukowski”. - Time
Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of short stories, poetry and prose, and, many would claim, our most influential and imitated poet.
He was born in Andernach, Germany and raised in Los Angeles, where he lived for 50 years.
He published his first story in 1944, when he was twenty-four, and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, Ca. March 9, 1994 at the age of seventy-three.
The works being staged for Being Bukowski come from the author’s book of short stories “Tales of Ordinary Madness” with poetry from “The Pleasures of the Damned”. Be warned, these stories and poems are not for the “faint of stomach or the weak at heart”.
We are honoring the anniversary of Mr. Bukowski’s passing with this evening of raw unflinching short stories and poems. Only The Roadhouse could offer a night like this to its audience. No noun or pronoun will be shown any mercy.
A cast of unusual actors and artists have been chosen for this eclectic presentation, they include R. David Pratte, Chris Campbell, Jay D’Alba, Collis Allen, Jr. and Scott McClelland on short stories and Aaron Pacy on poetry. The show is a readers-theatre presentation.
“Bukowski is the laureate of the Los Angeles underground. An eccentric who sees the world with a clarity of vision possessed only by artists and madmen”. - The Los Angeles Times
