Jack of Cups

  • The Flea Theater 20 Thomas St, New York, NY (map)

Mainstage, 2019

The Remembrance Festival Planning Committee invites you to commune with a humanity broken and reborn in JACK OF CUPS.

Many years from now - long after The Wave That Eats The World - a stranger, queerer, more loving world has sprouted from the sodden rubble and ruins: a world called Mother Ocean. Once a year, the many communities of this new world become one by making the perilous pilgrimage to a barren island for the Remembrance Festival. Amidst the food and drink and games, the sharing of knowledge and the telling of Big Stories, the people of Mother Ocean are visited by a mysterious and legendary wanderer who comes to tell the biggest Big Story they have: their post-apocalyptic creation myth.
