The Iceman Labs

Target Margin Theater present the ICEMAN Lab, our radical new approach to The Iceman Cometh by Eugene O’Neill, with four diverse theater artists each tackling a separate act of the play. This fresh take on O’Neill’s classic will allow audiences to see each act as a separate experiment, all four together as a unified whole, or both.

JUNE 2 – June 25, 2016 at HERE

Act I
Lead Artist: Julia Sirna Frest
ACT I will turn Harry Hope’s saloon upside down for an all-out O’Neill sing-a-long song cycle. All 17 characters of The Iceman Cometh get their own chance to shine on stage.

Act II
Lead Artist: Yuris Skujins
ACT II turns the stage into a birthday celebration for Harry Hope and the delirious booze-soaked souls that fill his bar.

Lead Artist: Katie Rose McLaughlin
In ACT III six female dancers play O’Neill’s fourteen barflies in a highly choreographed study of existential dread, rising to the occasion and falling back down again.

Act IV
Lead Artist: Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew
ACT IV An audio and live-action puppetry animation journey into the sobering minds of the wax figures who were once proud and ambivalent drunks at Harry Hope’s bar.
