CULTUREMART 2015: CasablancaBox Sara Farrington & Reid Farrington

About the show

CasablancaBox is a completely true exploration of the making of America’s favorite movie. It is an original play inspired by recently unearthed and never before heard archival material, combined with an intricate video design through which Casablanca’s iconic characters are projected onstage, interacting with live actors. Casablanca serves as the spine, from which stories of risk, sacrifice, brilliance and accidents branch off, all told by six performers who jump in and out of time, character, gender, style, tone, aesthetic and, most importantly, Casablanca—all in the pursuit of one answer: What makes a great work of art? Far from a bio-pic, CasablancaBox is an immersion into 1940s Hollywood—glamour, war, censorship, rampant sexism, racism, addiction and violence. And cigarettes.
