A Day

By Gabrielle Chapdelaine
Translated by Josephine George
Directed by Anne Cecelia DeMello

Hour by hour, Alfonso, Nico, Harris, and Debs move through a day. The play shuttles, like a microscope, between different ways of experiencing reality as it examines four manifestations of existential crisis: through the characters’ banal daily interactions with the outside world, their inner life as narrated by the other three characters, and a third metaphysical space in which they are aware of their participation, and agency, in something called “a day.” This weird, funny, tender play explores the feeling that life is a strange amalgamation of the movies we watch, the clothes we buy, and the food we consume, while toying with the possibility that each of these fragile characters is just an aspect of one, singular person.


Patrons are cordially invited to engage in a pre-show experience prior to the streamed performance of A Day.  This optional experience is recommended before viewing the show on your registered date and time.  It features information about the creative process, an interactive Twine journey to transition from your day into the world of the play, as well as a link directly to the show where you may enter your access code to view the stream.  All show times have been pushed to 8:15 PM EST to accommodate the pre-show experience.
