Afterclap

“Afterclap is a harrowing, untethering bit of theatre–another in the risky, dark oeuvre of Rising Phoenix Rep. For three quarters of an hour, we are witness to the deepest recesses of a conflicted soul, with all the emotional release and rescue that can provide.”

–Martin Denton, nytheatre.com

Afterclap
A new play by Daniel Reitz
Directed by Daniel Talbott
Featuring Haskell King*
World Premiere

February 8th – 22nd, 2010
Seventh Street Small Stage

A man wakes up naked on the floor in the backroom of a bar at 4 am, not immediately clear how he got there, both trying and dreading to remember. He dresses, he drinks, he self-medicates and he recounts, in a quest for self-exoneration. Grappling with the gnawing feelings of his culpability, poring over the physical evidence of his guilt, he obsesses over the nature and extent of his accountability in the afterclap—the unexpected damage that follows the end of an affair.
