Van Sonata

Test Flight, Week 1

Cleveland Public Theatre

Cleveland, OH (Gordon Square)
Professional Theatre

By: Anthony X

March 25 - March 26, 2021

Show Description:

This is a reading, an exploration, a play in fragments. Van Sonata is a quilt of three storylines tied together: a Black British composer’s first tour in America while being interviewed by a Black newspaper, two Black reporters uncovering a myth, and two musicians in a romantic and artistic partnership. It’s about media, music, and myths, and how claiming space is a physical act.
