P.E.T.E. delves into the substance of home, identity, intimacy and human resolve in their newest collaboration: "Enter THE NIGHT," by Maria Irene Fornes. "Enter THE NIGHT" is a deeply human play by a seminal avant-garde theatre artist of our preceding generation.
PETE colludes with NYC director Alice Reagan to shape a SUR-realistic world of fancy and verity. Enter THE NIGHT is a play situated between dreaming and wakefulness, fantasy and reality, myth and life. It attempts to capture the complexity of love between three friends by depicting the deep strangeness of human relationships. This true love cannot be reduced to easy categories. As each character deals with their attempts at independence, their failed dreams and their approaching mortality, they experience a fear of not being truly alive—or perhaps it is a fear of living. They challenge our commonly accepted notions of love and confront us with our own responsibility to live.
