Obskene is the Greek term for off-stage and is the basis for the word obscene: it refers to the horrendous and unseen acts of violence that happen off-stage but are never depicted in Greek tragic plays. OBSKENE utilizes both messenger speeches of classical Greek Tragedy (newly adapted by Sidney Goldfarb and Lizzie Olesker) and reports from the near future in a variety of styles creating a multi-layered narrative. The Talking Band has commissioned a diverse group of award-winning playwrights to write contemporary messenger speeches. The Greek messenger speeches contain some of the most disturbing images in the entirety of theater history, but they also vividly capture the humor, passion and humanity of their subjects. Similarly the contemporary reports imagine the harrowing, comic, and heartbreaking aspects of our lives in the years to come.

Adapted & Directed By: Tina Shepard, Ellen Maddow, Paul Zimet, Marcus Gardley, David Greenspan, Sidney Goldfarb, John Jesurun, Deb Margolin, Lizzie Olesker
