The Art of Facing Fear returns for a limited engagement…
Produced by Company of Angels and Rob Lecrone in co-production with Os Satyros (Brazil) and Darling Desperados (Sweden).
If you missed the multiple Broadway World Award nominated production, The Art of Facing Fear, featuring performers from across the nation, including California, New York, Oregon, Nevada, and Alaska, now is your chance to be part of theatrical history in the making. A new three-week run begins with the play’s December 5th inclusion in Brazil’s 20th Annual Festival Satyrianas, and will continue on Saturdays and Sundays, December 12, 13, 19, and 20 at 6pm PST.
Fiercely defiant, this production is an unflinching look at the "what if" of the rising authoritarianism and loneliness of the 21st century during COVID, and where it could lead 15 years into our future. The Art of Facing Fear, is a one-hour virtual play designed specifically for the new digital theatre and inspired by our current world situation.
Critical Praise from the September run of The Art of Facing Fear:
“...[includes] one of the most provocative and theatrically confrontational moments I have ever witnessed, both in a theater as well as on-screen...brilliant theatrical production...asking us how we fit in while thinking about how we can, or will, move on together when the time is right to do so...presented by talented artists on the cusp of artistic greatness.”
- Broadway World
“The production and the actors that present it do so in a manner that is not just brave, but entirely fearless. It is rare for a piece of art to challenge so many important topics...No matter where you stand on the issues of our day, this is a production that you should experience.”
