Dolores Rice's Mr. Benn - A Femoir

Member Dolores Rice, artist in residence at Tribeca Performing Arts Center, will be presenting her newest work Mr. Benn - A Femoir: An exploration of life, with one costume change to the next on Monday, June 13.

Emerging from an on-screen world of costumes is an on-stage world into which Dolores Rice steps into multiple costumes as she travels through her semi-fictional life aided by story and song. This is an adaptation of the popular TV series Mr. Benn from 1971. Mr. Benn visits a fancy-dress costume shop where he is invited by the mustachioed, fez-wearing shopkeeper to try on a particular outfit. When he leaves through a magic door at the back of the changing room, he enters a world where he has an adventure before the shopkeeper reappears to lead him back to the changing room, and the story comes to an end. Mr. Benn returns to his normal life, but is left with a small souvenir of his magical adventure. Dolores Rice is a playwright, film-maker and novelist.
