Conversations with Hitler 

When: Fridays-Sundays and Thu., Aug. 31. Continues through Sept. 2 2017
Price: $10-$15

Military sensory deprivation experiments in the fifties proved that when our bodies don't get enough stimulation, our minds are alarmingly capable of taking up the slack. These are the questions for one inmate who has a vivid imagination and a real gift for words: Is he participating in a prison playwriting group? If so, why do the scenes he and the students enact in the class appear to melt into real-life encounters elsewhere in the prison—flashbacks with flashbacks embedded within? Is there actually an audience for his disturbing monologues? Or has he never left solitary confinement? Inmate author Steven R. Bond took honorary mention in the 2014 PEN America Prison Writing awards for Conversations with Hitler. Now Robert Diaz, John Paul Middlesworth, and Livian Kennedy star in this production from ARClitE's little independent theater, which takes the whole "Is this a dagger before me?" question up a few notches. Julya Mirro directs. —Byron Woods
