Kitchen Dog Theater presents A History of the Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus by Washington Irving
This play is an almost totally true story of a financially ruined, washed-up Washington Irving, who is blackmailed by the Vatican and given a simple literary assignment: to scrub the story of Cristóbal Colón, one of history’s most notorious sea-faring pillagers. It is an origin story that asks: What happens when the Myth becomes more powerful than the Truth? Also, there’s music. And murder. Lots of murder.
