A clandestine reading of a forbidden text, in an undisclosed underground location requiring an invitation and two passwords. Adapted by Edward Mast from a text that might or might not have been written by Seneca when he was an advisor to Roman Emperor Nero.

 

The invitation:

 

 

Edward Mast has written a play called SENECA.  The topics of the play are currently legal to discuss.  That could change.

 

Robert Leigh is directing a performance of SENECA which will take place at an undisclosed location in the Capitol Hill area.  It will not be advertised.  It will be indoors, there wll be seats, but it will not be in a theater.  Audience members will need a password  to find the location.  The password will be different for each night.

 

Three nights only: Oct 13, 14, 15: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 9:00 pm.  The piece will last less than one hour.  Seating is very limited.  

 

To witness this performance, you will need to call (206) 313-5958, or email seneca.project.2008@gmail.com.  The voicemail will not refer to this project.   Please use the codeword SENECA.  You’ll need to tell us what night you’d like to attend, the number of people in your party, and your phone and email contact.  We'll also need to know the name of each person in your party.   

 

You’ll receive a confirmation call or email with the information and password you need.

 

Only a small number of people will be able to see this play. If you’d like to be one of them, get in touch right away.
