Frederick Glaysher’s ‘Parliament of Poets’ at Theatre Nova for three Sunday performances. September 13, 2019 Encore Staff

ANN ARBOR—On September 22, 29, and October 6, the theatre company, Apollo’s Troupe, will stage the theater adaptation of the poem, The Parliament of Poets, written by Michigan poet Frederick Glaysher and published in 2012 by Earthrise Press.

Taking place on the moon at the Apollo 11 landing site, a lone poet finds himself charged by Don Quixote and “The Parliament of Poets” to spread a new message of beauty, unity, and love to all nations of our fractured modern world. He is then sent to meet with the great poets, myths, and characters from history, East and West, to be mentored on his quest towards enlightenment and understanding.

The cast features the poet himself, as a persona, The Poet of the Moon, as well as five actors playing multiple roles including Don Quixote, Merlin the Magician, Jane Austen, Ann Arbor Poet Robert Hayden, Leo Tolstoy, the Biblical prophet-poet Job, the great Chinese poet Du Fu, the African Queen Sogolon, and many more. These actors are Dennis Kleinsmith (formerly Theatre Nova, JET, Shakespeare in Detroit, etc.), Krystle Dellihue (Shakespeare In Detroit, Matrix Theatre, Redbud, PTD), Alexander Sloan (Open Book, Water Works, Hope College), Marley Boone (Williamston, St. Dunstan’s, several Philadelphia theatres), Patrick Grimes (Redbud, Morris, Young People’s Theatre), all joining the Guest Production at Theatre Nova.

The canto with Job on the moon broods on the Holocaust and the meaning of suffering, taking the audience deep into the tragedy of modern times, while offering a peace beyond understanding like no other.

The show will be a Guest Production at Theatre Nova, 410 West Huron Street, Sunday evenings September 22, 29, and October 6. Tickets are at the door and online beginning in mid-August at TheatreNova.org. $22 general, $15 students. Go to TheatreNova.org or EarthrisePress.Net for more information. Or call 248-453-4220.

The Parliament of Poets can be purchased at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore.
