A Tunnel Year is a three-part book with a play at its center, built from a few years’ worth of interrupted thoughts crammed into one-line scenes voiced by animals. Germinated in the Bardo of parenthood and compelled to work in the form of the fragment, it asks: Did I escape? Or am I lost?
It was installed as a walk-though book, and also performed as a live radio play (to be mixed down and posted eventually) at The Chocolate Factory Theater in Long Island City, Queens, Dec. 3-11 2016, and will be remounted at A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton, MA, in May 2018.
The play was developed at New Dramatists with Caleb Bark, Kate Benson, John Gasper and Julia Sirna-Frest, who helped give it voice from its earliest fragments, and in conversation with Erin Courtney and Barbara Hammond.
