Samuel and Alasdair

New Ohio Theatre presents

The Return of Samuel & Alasdair

January 5 - 21, 2012

 

If you missed The Mad Ones’ sold-out, limited run in Brooklyn, now is your chance to finally see the award-winning show, Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War, winner of the New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Production of a Play, Outstanding Ensemble, and Outstanding Sound Design!

New Ohio Theatre is proud to present The Mad Ones as part of the inaugural season in our new space. Come see what Alexis Soloski of the Village Voice calls “pleasantly eccentric and unexpectedly poignant.”

Helen Shaw of Time Out New York raves, “The show may feel as fragile as a vacuum tube, but its actually unbreakably deft- and delightful to its minutest detail… rest assured, you are safe in the hands of some confident new theatrical talents.” (4 stars)

Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War
JAN. 5-21, 2012

Broadcasting live from the Victory Theater in downtown Irkutsk, it’s the “At Home Field Guide”, brought to you by Soviet Free Radio Order. Today your hosts buck the chaos and mounting panic to bring you an American story of first love and first heartbreak, along with the musical stylings of Alexei ‘Tumbleweed’ Petrovya. Tune in, take heart-and be careful out there, friends.

In an alternate global history, the cold war was decided not by dtente, not by nuclear holocaust, but by massive robot invasion. Among the survivors, a team of Russian radio hosts, warmed to a lost culture of 1950s Americana, broadcast a story of brothers love drawn straight from the American heartland. Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War combines 1950s radio drama, vintage country music, and Soviet science in a sci-fi surrealist War of the Worlds-meets-A Prairie Home Companion examination of American nostalgia.
