David Greenspan: The Agrument + Plays

Transport Group will present a one-night only presentation of two wonderful solo pieces by David Greenspan, The Argument and Plays, on Sunday April 28th at 7pm, as part of their Dark Night Series during their regular run of The Memory Show.

The Argument by David Greenspan
Based on both Aristotle’s Poetics and the essays of Gerald F. Else, The Argument is a passionate student’s love-letter and farewell to his teacher – reminding us of the personal pathos that binds us to the Greeks, and firing us to capture that chimera, art. The 40-minute monologue dramatizes the attack on poetry made by Plato in the Republic, and the coherent rebuttal offered by Aristotle in the Poetics.

Plays by Gerturde Stein
Plays is Gertrude Stein’s whimsical and provocative lecture on theatre; a hidden gem of theatricality and wit that only Stein could have delivered – a coherent account of her development as a playwright and her exploration of theatre from the standpoint of sight and sound rather than story and action.
