    As I Lay Dying ... in Times Square

    For the first time in New York history, William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying makes its stage premiere as Chashama and Basement Flat productions transform a Times Square store-front and industrial meat locker into a slice of rural Mississippi. Told in alternating bursts of laughter and despair, As I Lay Dying is the story of a poor Mississippi family struggling with flood, fire, and each other as they carry their dead mother's body to be buried. Basement Flat brings this story to life in a daring documentary style adaptation focused on animating Faulkner's tragic and hysterical characters. Faulkner started writing As I Lay Dying the day after the stock market crashed in 1929. The play, a vivid portrait of American society at the beginning of the Great Depression, is filled with the humor and pathos of some of the most memorable and monumental characters in American literature.
