Studio C Artists in association with Pachyderm Productions is proud to present the return of “Man’s Dominion”, the 2014 Hollywood Fringe favorite and twice-extended Producers’ Award Series one-person show about the lynching of Mary the circus elephant in 1916.
“Man’s Dominion” is a true story straight out of history; Mary its victim a symbol of nature held captive; and the entire tale an allegory of the dark heart beating under the thin skin of Norman Rockwell’s small-town America. Recently, it was Ferguson, Missouri and North Charleston, South Carolina. Ninety-nine years ago it was Erwin, Tennessee.
Our latest review suggested it’s “not to be missed”!
“It is profound writing coupled with insightful direction and a brilliant performance… If you saw it at the Fringe, see it again. The restraints of time have been removed and you will now have time to digest all the courses of this delectable performance.
“Man’s Dominion”, told through 19-interlocking monologues, tells its story through the characters and voices of circus workers, townspeople, and even Mary herself, as she finally, nearly a century later gets to give her version of what happened back in September 1916.
“Man’s Dominion” was written for the talents of actor Tim Powell, a 30-year veteran of stage, film and TV (Tennessee Rep, “Revenge”, “Nashville”). The show also features Emily Button in a wonderful cameo performance. This production is directed by John Coppola, who has helmed over forty theatrical productions in New York, Los Angeles, and abroad. “Man’s Dominion” was written by David Castro, an Emmy and Ace award nominated writer with over 20 years as a writer-producer of major broadcast TV (“Married with Children”, “Not Necessarily the News”) now writing for the intimacy and impact of live theatre.
