I’d give the shameless plug alert here, but I’m confident enough that Evidence Room‘s upcoming production of Philip K. Dick‘s Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said
is going to rock long and hard enough that it needs no qualification.
For those into sci-fi and/or the 99-seat theater scene, you may recall our previous production of this trippy-cool piece of theater that we staged at our old (rented) location in Culver City’s Ivy Substation. It broke all kinds of box office records for us (those Philip K. Dick fans are loyal, brother) and even the general population really just seemed to dig on it. It’s set in an L.A. of the future, which might partly explain its appeal, but the text itself (not to mention some killer production values) is just plain good. I mean, it’s not like the guy doesn’t have a proven track record, right?
The adaptation was done by Linda Hartinian for avant-theater powerhouse Mabou Mines just before Dick’s death. Like I said, it’s a cool-ass piece of work, and in our cool-ass Historic Filipinotown/Echo Park/Silver Lake-adjacent location, it’s gonna be even better this time around.
Opens Saturday, March 12. Details at the ER site.
