Sonnets for an Old Century

Recommended Posts

This work by Obie-winning, Academy Award-nominated playwright José Rivera asks the question, “What would you say about the life you’ve lived?”. In a waiting room for the afterlife, a crowd of ordinary souls are en route to their final resting place and are given one last chance to share with the universe their parting thoughts. Part poetry, part magical realism, this dreamscape play offers profound insights and revelations.

Has anyone here heard of this play? It sounds like a live version of After Life.

It's playing at the Steppenwolf Garage theater in Chicago right now, and I'm going to be in Chicago next weekend. It sounds pretty interesting, and the playwright also wrote The Motorcycle Diaries. The Urban Theater Company has some videos of "deleted scenes" (most productions apparently don't perform all of the monologues) from it on their YouTube page.
