JACK & is a comedy of errors structured on social codes and trainings from prison re-entry programs to debutante balls. The performance considers the metric-less damages of being in prison — not the time one has served but the measure of one’s dreaming that is given to the state. Aspirational class stories like those of the 1950’s sitcoms The Honeymooners and Amos and Andy intersect with real and imagined entering-society ceremonies like debutante balls. Directed by Kaneza Schaal and starring Cornell Alston, the artists explore markers of transition and transformation and the liminal ritual spaces that bridge worlds.
