DON JUAN directed by Andrej Visky

Sponsored by: Yale School of Drama

Directed by Andrej Visky
Written by Moliere
Translated by Brendan Pelsue
Adapted by Andrej Visky, Brendan Pelsue, and Samantha Lazar
Jan 27-31 at 8PM, Jan 31 at 2PM

Driven by insatiable desire, Don Juan, with his servant Sganarelle, travels the world, seeking pleasure through romantic conquest. Don Juan defies every authority he encounters. No moral code, religious belief, or social institution is safe from his scathing attack. What lies underneath the furious bravado of this man?  To whom is Don Juan ultimately issuing his challenge? At the heart of this darkly comic 17th century play lies a completely modern terror:  that there is no God, and no ultimate meaning beyond the appetites of the flesh.

THE SEAGULL directed by Jessica Holt

Sponsored by: Yale School of Drama

Directed by Jessica Holt
Written by Anton Chekhov
Translated by Paul Schmidt

A daring new play is performed on the shore of a lake.  Its idealistic young author is devastated when his work is mocked by family and friends.  Passions and jealousies surge as his beloved gives her heart away to his older rival. With comic brio and keen understanding, The Seagull explores our insatiable human desire to live an extraordinary life.  When our dreams – and delusions – are dashed, and all that remains is the excruciating ordinariness of daily living, how do we find the strength to go on?

“The Night of the Hunter” film screening at Best Video

Sponsored by: Best Video Performance Space

Best Video Performance Space concludes off its fall film series “Great Beach and Water Films” on Monday, Nov. 3, at 7 PM with “The Night of the Hunter,” a 1955 chiller starring Robert Mitchum. Admission is $7.

A little fun in the water can raise serious waves of issues. This poetry of cinema —  chosen from among Best Video owner Hank Paper’s all-time favorite films — will provide a raft of excitement, suspense and introspection, leading to optional discussions afterward.

A Depression-era itinerant preacher and widow-slayer (Robert Mitchum) stalks two young children who alone know his true identity, as well as where some bank robbery loot, which the preacher seeks, is hidden. The only film directed by Charles Laughton, this stand-alone masterwork of eerie expressionistic beauty is part Grimm faery tale, part coming-of-age salvation story – a poetic battle of good vs. evil featuring a sublimely sinister Mitchum and a stunningly radiant Lillian Gish in a screenplay written by the legendary James Agee.

Space is limited so call (203) 287-9286 to reserve your ticket.

Best Video is located at 1842 Whitney Ave. in Hamden. Phone (203) 287-9286.

Arcadia

Sponsored by: Yale Rep

Amidst illicit passions and professional rivalries on an English country estate, a brilliant young pupil proposes a startling scientific theory well beyond her own comprehension. More than 200 years later, two academic adversaries try to piece together puzzling clues from the past in their quest for an elusive truth. Arcadia is an achingly romantic and heartbreakingly funny waltz of the mind and the body, dancing across centuries.

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, the four-time Tony and Academy Award winning author of The Coast of Utopia, Rough Crossing (Yale Rep, 2008), and Shakespeare in Love, has been hailed as “the perfect blend of brains and emotion, wit and heartache” (The New York Times). Artistic Director James Bundy, whose Yale Rep credits include Hamlet, A Delicate Balance, and A Woman of No Importance, stages this new production of “the greatest play of our age” (The Independent).

“Cape Fear” (original) film screening at Best Video

Sponsored by: Best Video Performance Space

Best Video Performance Space continues off its fall film series “Great Beach and Water Films” on Monday, Oct. 13, at 7 PM with “Cape Fear,” a 1962 thriller starring Tom Hanks. Admission is $7.

A little fun in the water can raise serious waves of issues. This poetry of cinema —  chosen from among Best Video owner Hank Paper’s all-time favorite films — will provide a raft of excitement, suspense and introspection, leading to optional discussions afterward.

In one of his two most menacing roles (his role in The Night of the Hunter is the other, shown later in the series), Robert Mitchum plays a sociopathic ex-con determined to exact a terrible – and terribly legal – revenge on both the attorney (Gregory Peck) who put him away and the attorney’s family. A masterpiece of tension-building, shock and suspense that eclipses the later De Niro remake.

Space is limited so call (203) 287-9286 to reserve your ticket.

Best Video Performance Space is located at 1842 Whitney Ave. in Hamden. Phone (203) 287-9286.

Admission: $7
