Isaac Asimov Grand Master Funk

Showing:   October 27 - November 20, 2022
Where: Lyceum Space

By Herbert Siguenza
Directed by Thomas W. Jones II
A HERBERT SIGUENZA WORLD PREMIERE
 
The REP’s award-winning Playwright-in-Residence Herbert Siguenza (Bad Hombres/Good Wives, A Weekend with Pablo Picasso) is back with a sci-fi fantasy told in the key of funk. In 1992, just as the prolific sci fi writer Isaac Asimov is embarking on his final chapter, surprise visitors from outer space intercede to help him re-envision what is possible. PFunk—a former resident of Earth—and his protégé Anita have travelled back to the deep well of interstellar inspiration that is Asimov. Together they hope to rewrite a better future for our planet and beyond. Siguenza plays the title role in this world premiere intergalactic comedy, which turns his Culture Clash-style hilarity towards a mash-up of imagination, robotics, space travel and Afro-Futurism, all fueled by an infectious ‘70's Funk soundtrack.
 
Siguenza is “inspired by rebels and change makers, not only as an actor but as a playwright and artist...” -San Diego Magazine
