“ALICE INVENTS A LITTLE GAME AND ALICE ALWAYS WINS”
By Nick Flynn Directed by Marc Beaudin
Alice Invents a Little Game and Alice Always Wins, by award-winning memoirist and poet Nick Flynn, will kick off the 2023-24 season at Livingston’s Blue Slipper Theatre. The Blue Slipper is located at 113 E. Callender St.
The play features four strangers who meet on a New York City sidewalk during a blackout. Unable to make sense of their predicament, let alone alter it, the four float aimlessly in and out of seeming reality only to find themselves even more lost when the electricity finally comes back on.
The playwright, Nick Flynn, has published twelve books, most recently This Is the Night Our House Will Catch Fire and Stay: Threads, Collaborations, and Conversations, which documents 25 years of his collaborations with artists, filmmakers and composers. He is also the author of five collections of poetry … awarded fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Library of Congress…. and written acclaimed memoir, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, which was made into a film starring Robert DeNiro. The memoir has been translated into 15 languages.
The director, Marc Beaudin, has worked in theatre for 25 years as a director, scenic designer and educator at venues ranging from unheated warehouses and art galleries to a 1000-seat, state-of-the-art theatre.
