"Cave Dwellers" at Allen's Lane Art Center

My friend Natasha Kelly is performing in a production of "Cave Dwellers," a play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright William Saroyan. It opened last weekend, but there are still two weekends of shows remaining.

"Cave Dwellers" at Allen's Lane Art Center

"Cave Dwellers" follows the story of a crumbling theater slated for demolition as it provides temporary shelter to an eclectic group of poverty-stricken performers (including a bear) who are seeking refuge from the bitter cold. The poetry of their hope creates a warm bond among these strangers as they negotiate an indifferent world with dignity and grace. In this bittersweet, heartwarming fable, survival has nothing to do with avoiding the wrecking ball.

Show Dates: Jan 21,22,23,28,29,30 Feb 4,5

Show Times: Show time varies by weekend day:
  • Fri/Sat shows start at 8 p.m.
  • Sunday shows start at 6 p.m.

By the way, Allen's Lane is cabaret style: You can bring food and drink (alcohol is fine) to enjoy 40 minutes before the show starts.
