I could not be more excited to have my play Henry and the Hippocampus included in The Road Theatre's Summer Playwrights Festival.
Henry and the Hippocampus was originally written as part of my graduate school program with USC School of Dramatic Arts and was awarded The Kennedy Center's Jean Kennedy Smith Award in 2014. Subsequently developed in a round table reading at The Lark in 2015, this will be the first public presentation of the play.
WHAT: Henry and the Hippocampus, by Brian James Polak | Henry suffers a head trauma causing him to lose the ability to create new memories. Maria, his wife, and Patryk, his doctor, become entwined as they both struggle to balance their own lives with the life of a man stuck in one perpetual moment.
WHEN: Saturday, August 5th at 8pm
WHERE: The Road Theatre | 5108 Lankershim Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601
TICKETS: Because SPF8 is a fundraiser, tickets are by donation (suggested $15) and are only available at the door.
WHO: The reading will be directed by April Webster. Cast TBD.
