My “Thin Pale Man” storyline is just one of six arcs in Woodshed Collective‘s site specific theatre piece The Tenant.
The production: Set in an abandoned church on 86th and Amsterdam, The Tenant is inspired by Roland Topor’s book and subsequent film by Roman Polanski. When Monsieur Trelkovsky rents a room recently vacated by a woman who fell from her window, he soon becomes haunted by images of the previous tenant’s apparent suicide and begins a slow decent into paranoia and delirium. Installed by Woodshed over multiple building stories and utilizing a company of over 20 actors, The Tenant explores the bubbling conflict between an uncanny mix of colorful characters to create a symphonic piece of theater.
Hint: My piece is self-contained and exists solely on the fourth (top) floor.
