PORTRAIT OF JASON

TBA

Adapted by Bryan Smith '21

based on the film by Shirley Clarke and the stories of Jason Holliday

Senior Project in Drama members: Bryan Smith '21

About the play: On a December night in 1966, Jason Holliday — a Black, gay, hustler and aspiring nightclub performer — was invited to director Shirley Clarke’s penthouse for the opportunity of a lifetime. There at The Chelsea Hotel, Jason was to immortalize his tales of life, love, lust, and loss in a documentary film. However, when Jason’s jokes start to fall flat, the turmoil underscoring his relationship with his audience comes violently surging to the surface.

There will be no live public audience in attendance for this presentation based on the guidelines from Vassar College on gatherings due to the current Covid-19 pandemic situation.

AS YOU LIKE IT

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Professor Christopher Grabowski
