Washington's own Rorschach Theatre company presents the bizarre new drama The Gallerist at Atlas Performing Arts Center. Penned by award-winning playwright Fengar Gael (The Island of No Tomorrows, Opaline, Devil Dog Six), The Gallerist finds a British-born gallerist in a Manhattan jail cell. There, he recounts the sordid tale of how he came to be charged with assault and vagrancy -- all thanks, in the end, to a spiteful monkey. With a plot that travels from modern-day Manhattan to a recent-past pet shop in London, the play touches on the power of art, the futility of unrequited love and the effects of repressed passion, all while drawing inspiration from the likes of Othello, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
