Ancram Opera House Presents ‘Invasion!’

Ancram Opera House presents INVASION! a comedy by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, and directed by Jeffrey Mousseau. Running now, until August 21st.

INVASION! is a satirical comedy centered on a name: Abulkasem. What is introduced as an amorphous word of many meanings spirals and shape-shifts into a kaleidoscopic range of identities. Abulkasem is an uncle visiting from Lebanon, a renowned theater director, an asylum-seeking apple picker, the world’s most dangerous terrorist. In a whirlwind of interconnected vignettes, we search for the answer. Who is Abulkasem?

With biting comedy and multilayered storytelling, INVASION! confronts prejudices about identity, race, and language.

Jonas Hassen Khemiri is an award-winning Swedish novelist and playwright. He is the author of five novels, six plays, and a collection of essays and short stories. Khemiri’s novels have been translated into over thirty languages. His plays have been performed by over a hundred international companies on stages from Stockholm to Berlin to New York to London.

INVASION is translated by Rachel Willson-Broyles.

The Cat Rescuers Kit-Tea Party at Ancram Opera House, Apr 27

The documentary had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival where it won the Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award, given each year to a film that inspires audiences to respect the dignity and rights of all living beings and encourages dialogue about how we treat and view animals as a community.

The Cat Rescuers follows Sassee, Claire, Tara and Stu night and day as they hit the streets, backyards and alleys of Brooklyn to save feline lives. As the film unfolds, it shows the extraordinary skill, resilience and humor these passionate urban heroes bring to this challenging work, and how it has changed their lives. Against great odds, they are making a difference.

The Cat Rescuers film will be followed by the Kit-Tea party featuring refreshments by Harney Tea and delicious sweets by local volunteers. Kittens and cats will be available for viewing and adoption. Collaborative Cats annual Spring Raffle winners will be chosen.

DATE/TIME:
Saturday, April 27th, 2019 / 2pm
Kit-Tea Party at 3:30pm

ADMISSION:
$10.00 – Kit-Tea Party (includes refreshments and one raffle ticket)
