Premiere of post-apocalyptic one-acts set
One-Eighth Theater’s world premiere of Numbness: Chapter 2 will begin performances on April 26 for a run through May 18 at New Ohio Theatre (154 Christopher St.). A tragicomedy about the unfelt, directed and choreographed by Daniel Irizarry, Numbness: Chapter 2 takes place a post-apocalyptic world where people feel nothing. Two one-acts constitute the production: Sylvia Bofill’s Black Water, about a couple in a kitchen-cum-laboratory; and Robert Lyons’s Yovo, in which Irizarry plays a person seeking meaning in an unkind world.
