Independent Voices Festival

Media Title

Norristown’s Centre Theater wastes no time getting busy in 2013 with the company’s 4th annual Independent Voices Festival—an event that spotlights solo plays featuring the region’s top writer-performers. Not every play is performed by the playwright (a notable exception is Howard Zinn’s wonderfully engaging Marx in Soho, featuring Bob Weick in an immersive portrayal of philosopher Karl Marx) but one that does star the creator is Chris Davis’ innovative Drunk Lion. Writer-performer Davis’ solo play focuses on an alcoholic lion whiling away his time drinking in a Mexican cantina, where he is interrupted by a young foreigner attempting to learn Spanish. Performed by Davis in both Spanish and English, the play is a unique exploration of languages, loss and liquor.  At 8 p.m., Bill Hollenbach’s biographical drama Citizen Paine—starring Adam Altman as the patriot Thomas Paine—focuses on Paine’s life and humanistic ideals as he waits anxiously for the New Rochelle government to determine if he has the right to vote. -J. Cooper Robb
