"A thought-provoking theatrical homage to John Cage" - Theatermania
"Mystifying. Ms. Bogart is... interested in making us think about what theater means and what we want from it." -NY Times
CHESS MATCH NO. 5 is a new play by Jocelyn Clarke, based on the words of American composer, writer, artist, and philosopher John Cage. SITI actors Will Bond and Ellen Lauren embody the dramatic journey of a long-term relationship over 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. This is SITI Company in an adventurous mood, landing lightly upon the profound truths to which we all can relate.
