15th anniversary season

Harry and the Thief

by Sigrid Gilmer

Directed by Ensemble Member Khiry Armstead

January 16-26, 2020 (Limited Engagement)

at the Contemporary Arts Center

Science Fiction, Historical Drama, and Comedic Farce are thrown into a genre blender in Sigrid Gilmer’s provocative and hilarious new play HARRY AND THE THIEF. Mimi’s cousin Jeremy has a PhD in physics, a brand-new time machine, and a plan: He’s sending Mimi, a professional thief, back to 1863 to alter history by providing Harriet Tubman with modern-day guns. Lots and lots of guns.

 

Gilmer describes her own work: “Black comedies that are historically bent, totally perverse, joyfully irreverent and are concerned with issues of identity, pop culture and contemporary American society.” HARRY AND THE THIEF is a perfect encapsulation of all of this. 10 performances only at the CAC.
