StoneCrabs’ The Asphalt Kiss @ The New Diorama Theatre

New theatrical production from the always StoneCrabs production team. The Asphalt Kiss, by Brazilian playwright Nelson Rodrigues, is a story about compassion, media and perception. Here’s the synopsis for the production: “As a pedestrian hit by a bus lies dying on a Rio street, a passer-by, Arandir, stops to cradle him in his arms. He kisses him on the lips – a last request from the dying man as a parting gesture of human solidarity. The scene is witnessed by an unscrupulous reporter who turns the compassionate act into salacious front-page news. Tabloid journalism spins into overdrive, and Arandir’s life is torn apart as his friends and family slowly turn against him.”
