Not I

Joyous Eddies House of Theater
[Mark Lord + Catharine Slusar]

September 15-October 3

2021 Fringe Festival



908 Christian Street

A handful of audience members gather in an intimate space. 

A mouth speaks—she utters a torrent of words: as searing and searching a text as Samuel Beckett ever wrote. With scalding intensity, the play clamors to discover: who are we when we are our whole selves, when we speak and hear all of our voices in a moment—in their rages and echoes and mis-rememberings and deprecations and desires? 

It lasts for fifteen minutes. And forever.

Barrymore award-winner Catharine Slusar stars. Mark Lord directs.

Most performances will be followed by a post-show talk with the artists.


Not I is supported by the Bryn Mawr College Faculty Research Fund and Plaisir D’Amour Petit Théâtre in Sauve, France, where an early version of this project was developed.

Festival Co-Producer: Michael Lillys
