DELL VALLE is my story: an account of the time I spent in a Texas state prison on a drug charge in 2006, when I met myself for the first time. 13 character. 1 man.

November 3 – BEDLAM by Zayd Dohrn

directed by Kip Fagan

featuring Will Brill, Sasha Diamond, William Jackson Harper, Jessica Hecht, Sarah Sakolovic, Elvy Yost

When Sam witnesses an act of senseless violence on the New York subway, he invites the victim, Kevin, back to his apartment to rest and recuperate. But as the two young men develop an unexpected friendship, Sam’s friends and family start to worry that Kevin could be dangerous – or worse, that Sam’s attachment could be a symptom of a sickness he’s struggled with his entire life. Bedlam is a look at the prejudices that divide us, and the craziness of trying to make connections in spite of our differences.

In an apartment building feverish with yearning, neighbors eavesdrop on neighbors, the government sends menacing letters and the past won’t stop knocking.  And through all the noise, Ned weaves a love story for his upstairs neighbor Salvia, luring her off to a land far far away.
