Brooklyn, NY – Triskelion Arts is pleased to present cakeface’s new work, Harold, I hate you., this May in the Muriel Schulman Theater.
ABOUT THE WORK
I don't know who Harold is, but I'm pretty sure I hate him. Florida, 1985. Chris isn't eating his broccoli. There's a knock at the door. Grams says it's a little boy named Harold who lives upstairs. He has come to eat our dinner. We clean the plates just in time, but he returns again and again. Harold, I hate you. is an exploration of the many incarnations "the boy from upstairs” took on in cakeface director Amanda Szeglowski’s rabid imagination. This new work is an investigation of omnipresent insecurities, that are, perhaps, imaginary.
