Imagine Sisyphus Happy (NYC)

News Story

Ever heard of a Sisyphean task? It comes from the Greek myth, which inspired PPA grad Keelay Gipson ’10 to write a play: Imagine Sisyphus Happy, which you can catch a performance of on Wednesday, April 18, through Saturday, April 28.

In the Greek myth, a man named Sisyphus was condemned by the Gods to an eternity of futile labor. Every time he reached the top of a mountain, he would lose the burden he carried, over and over again, never to succeed.

The aptly named Imagine Sisyphus Happy is a love/hate letter to American theater in the form of a play written by Keelay Gipson ’10. It’s part of the New Play Development initiative at PPA that fosters emerging talent, and features a cast and crew of Pace students. Don’t miss out!

Wednesday, April 18 through Saturday, April 28
7:30 evening performances, 2:00 p.m. matinees
Schaeberle Studio Theater

Gipson is an actor, filmmaker, director, and award-winning playwright. His most recent work, What I Tell You in the Dark, was selected as a Premiere Stages Playwriting Festival Finalist. Gipson is also the co-founder of The Lost Collective, a multimedia theatrical experience about discovering your identity.
