Blue-S- Cat by Koffi Kwahulé
Presented by Hurrah Hurrah
Directed by Alicia Gonzalez
A man and a woman are trapped in an elevator. Alone in an unnamed city, confined and isolated by their own thoughts. Blue-S- Cat is an absurdist dramedy. Using the improvisational rhythms of jazz; the characters’ inner monologues propel the story and music of the play across a complex landscape of the mind.
