Mac Premo’s one-man play, The Luckiest Arab in Belfast, is his look into the tension between life’s looming questions and minute details, told through a series of stories from his own life. The play will be performed in a site-specific installation, which will become a solo art exhibit at The Invisible Dog through May. Mac’s previous four plays (Chicken, Kick Ass and What’s for Sale; One & Is; Commonword; and Exit Waffles) have been performed in Providence, Rhode Island and New York City. This is his first solo performance directed by Ed Schmidt.
