Part of Theater for the New City's 2017 Dream Up Festival: This world premiere drama explores the psychology of being a clown.
Based on author/performer Nathalie Ellis-Einhorn’s experiences as well as interviews with other clowns, 'I.M. Lost' tells the story of Little Snotty the Disaster. As a jester, Little Snotty is a bust because she doesn’t know how to cultivate a clown’s irrational hope. We follow her through encounters with birthday, hospital, and theater clowns who discuss failure and why they keep pouring all their work, pain, and love into something that’s so seemingly useless.
