Jobsite Theater presents "Closetland" by Radha Bharadwaj, based on her 1991 screenplay about a man who purports to be a government representative and his interrogation of the female author of a children's story.
The theater says: "Powerful and terrifying, 'Closetland' ultimately links political, state-sponsored violence with intimate, personal abuse, asserting that both forms of violence stem from the same root. It captures the psychological landscape of those who engage in torture and aggression, while also defining the nature of courage and resistance. Its gripping, unflinching scrutiny of both, and its sweep and power, captures the nature of violence, and violence against a woman, in particular, without resorting to exploitative gore. You will leave with a deeper understanding of why some human beings violate others — and why some manage to soar above the abuse."
NOTE: Jobsite is accepting new children's clothing, personal hygiene products, diapers, and health and beauty aids in front of the theater about an hour before each performance. The items are being collected on behalf of The Spring of Tampa Bay, a local domestic-violence shelter.
