The Hotel Nepenthe
The Hotel Nepenthe by John Kuntz
Through the twisting, winding corridors of the mind lied a world both chillingly relatable and thoroughly alien. As the settings and characters shift and morph through a series of delightfully turbulent vignettes, we are drawn down a rabbit hole of the familiar and the bizarre, held captive by endless parallel universes that seep from the stage to consume our very being. Not for the faint of heart, The Hotel Nepenthe is a perilously absurd romp through the mysteries of human nature, the ripples of fairy wings and alternate realities, and the search of meaning from within the abyss.

We at Brown Box see theatre as a democratic art form. We believe that theater does not live in the academy but in the streets. Unfortunately, professional theater in this country has been contracted to a handful of geographic locations, leaving the impression that it is the exclusive domain of the elite. We want to battle this misconception. Like the traveling medieval troupes that brought their shows from the cities to the villages on the back of a wagon, we load up our truck and bring theatre to the people. We are not in the business of discriminating: our repertoire includes the classical and the contemporary, the celebrated and the obscure. Our taste tends toward sets that are simple, characters that provoke, and language that resonates. Anything that does not fit in the truck gets left behind.

Brown Box works with Boston based talent to develop a diverse range of high quality theatre. These productions serve the Boston community and then tour in order to share all that the Boston Theatre Scene has to offer with audiences in Maryland, Delaware, and other communities that crave the performing arts.
