The Brick and Human Head Performance Group present the story of Hero, a woman under house arrest, and her Lawyer, who travels the world trying to find information that will set her free. More…
Inspired by the 18th Century French novel 'Voyage Around My Room,' the story follows the ups, downs, strange turns, and mental excursions of a modern woman—our Hero—who is bound to her own home while awaiting a court date that may never come. She has little to occupy her but a world-traveling Lawyer who writes letters he never sends, a house cat who writes plays she can’t understand, and a guard who swears he’s listening to everything she says.
"Terrific and very funny new play...The play and its questions are animated by great work by the cast...The show makes effective use of the entire space of the Brick... the play excels at creating its own world with a specific atmosphere and rhythms...'Due to Events' is a subjective experience that you should definitely have for yourself."

"I did not leave the theater completely perplexed. This comfortably confusing dark comedy is an existential rumination...While nothing is resolved and an eclectic variety of ways to pass the time within one’s home is showcased, it isn’t an entirely unfulfilling experience. With the audience laughing and 'hmm’ing' in all the right places, 'Due To Events' finds a unique groove before it ends as abruptly as it begins." Full Review
