Part of the 2019 Fringe Festival
This year’s Fringe Festival show Pursuit of Happiness marks the first offering from New York’s Nature Theater of Oklahoma since it completed the eight-part Life and Times series. Revisit that epic series with the screening of Episode 7 at Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia. With burning passion and limited means, Nature Theater of Oklahoma takes on Hollywood in an ode to Citizen Kane. Based on stories by Kristen Worrall, the film deploys rear screen projection, wigs, and a cast of eight to portray over one hundred characters on three continents, spanning the early adult years of the heroine’s life.
Talkback with Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper follows the film.
