Posts Tagged ‘The Archipelago: A Balkan Passage’

The Archipelago: A Balkan Passage is Robert Isenberg’s dynamic one-man-show about a journey through the former Yugoslavia. Adapted from his recent book, The Archipelago relates stories from Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia — told in an earthy, comic and often heartbreaking style. This show continues the “monologue” tradition of Spalding Gray and Mike Daisey, while incorporating multimedia elements.

Adapted for the stage and performed by the author, The Archipelago: A Balkan Passage is being presented by No Name Players in conjunction with Autumn House Press and will be directed by No Name Players’ Artistic Director, Don DiGiulio.

RSVP now on.
