Odd Man Out is a play about a blind man named Alberto, who is returning from New York to his home of Buenos Aires, Argentina after keeping himself away for decades. As he reflects, audiences travel with him on a journey through his life, beginning with the love of music he developed in boyhood. Alberto learned to play the guitar to eventually launch and lead a successful band, and he traveled all over the world. Some of his travels led to heartbreak and loss, but now he recalls the loves and fears he’s since left behind. The experience is structured as a plane flight, where audiences are welcomed by a “flight attendant” into the production.
Odd Man Out first premiered at Buenos Aires’s Teatro Ciego in 2019. For 15 years, the theatre has created shows performed in complete darkness for its seasons. The show made its New York premiere as an English-language workshop presentation in February 2020. Bondone, Carlos Armesto, and Facundo Bogarín co-direct.
