Riassunto: Play script. Acclaimed productions from Childsplay in Arizona, to the Asolo in Florida, from Honolulu's Theatre for Youth to the Fulton Opera House in Pennsylvania, guarantee this is one of the best plays of its decade, as proclaimed by ASSITEJ-USA. Unit set incorporates images of artist Rene Magritte, cleared for use in this play by his estate. Two men, two women, and a gender-neutral stage manager. (Spectacular color slides of the art works are available from Anchorage Press Plays for production use.)
Based freely on the work and early life of surrealist artist Rene Magritte, this is an unorthodox adventure in theatrical form. It celebrates art and the imagination, and the ways in which these help us confront life's mysteries. Here is the story of young Rene who wants to be an artist, a notion dismissed by his father as "a pipe dream." Encouraged by his mother, before her untimely death, the boy begins his quest, following his vision into the delightfully absurd magic-realism of his famous paintings. Boy and audience discover something of the true power of dreams and the triumph of imagination. This is a play adored by audiences, one that tickles the fancies of 6-year olds, appeals to 8th graders and adults.
