Long ago...

in a provincial town outside of Rio de Janeiro, there lived a doctor who wished to study madness. To satisfy this curiosity, the doctor persuaded his local council to build an insane asylum. It was a beautiful, many-windowed building with green shutters. The doctor called it the Casa Verde, or Green House.

O Alienista*

*A novella by celebrated Brazilian writer Machado de Assis.

"Greenhouse" is a live performance adaptation that heightens O Alienista's absurd humor and joy, while revisiting Machado's nuanced interrogation of crimes committed in the name of science. The show features an original score and an interlude of new short plays and poetry. Guests are encouraged to commune with the performers throughout the night.

"Greenhouse" will begin at 7:00PM with a casual gathering.
The performance will begin promptly at 7:30PM.
