"A thought-provoking theatrical homage to John Cage, played with impressive self-assurance by Will Bond and Ellen Lauren." - Theatermania.
CHESS MATCH NO. 5 is a new play by Jocelyn Clarke, based on texts from the many conversations with American composer, writer, artist, and philosopher John Cage. SITI actors Will Bond and Ellen Lauren embody the dramatic journey of a long-term relationship of the course of a single night and chess game.
Experience the wide-open, mind-bending brilliance of Cage's insights about art, music and philosophy and the adventures that life presents. Dense and humorous, graceful and penetrating, this is SITI Company in an adventurous mood, landing lightly upon the profound truths to which we all can relate.
