Event details

Performances are February 16 – 18 and 23 – 25 at 7:30 p.m. and February 26 at 2 p.m.

Set in an illegal underground nightclub in a city where all public social gatherings and all forms of art have been banned, a performance artist risks arrest to perform for the first (and last time) in front of his dying mother. With nothing but props, a microphone and a bottle of cognac, the performance artist holds nothing back because this show is unlike any other that he has performed.

Derek Lively is a veteran of the New York stage, but happily calls Southwest Florida his home, is thrilled to be back at Theatre Conspiracy. Previous performances at the Alliance for the Arts include King in King Hedley II, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in The Mountaintop, Frederick Douglass in The Agitators, Walter Lee Younger in A Raisin in the Sun and Canewell in Seven Guitars.

February 26’s matinee will feature a special Talkback with Derek happening directly after the show.

Help us better the impact of arts in our community by getting involved the Arts & Economic Prosperity Study 6 (AEP6). The information you provide will help to measure the economic impact of the arts in Lee County. 

We are excited to partner with Americans for the Arts to announce the launch of AEP6, the sixth national study of the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry! Economic impact studies such as these expand the conversation about how many people view the arts. While most appreciate the cultural benefit provided to our community, few realize that our local arts industry supports jobs, generates government revenue, and is a cornerstone of tourism.

We need your help to collect this data. While attending any performance, activity, event or program on our campus, please take a few moments to participate in the Audience & Attendee Survey. All answers are anonymous and help to measure the economic and social impact of arts and culture in our community!

Audience & Attendee Surveys will be available at the front desk in multiple formats including hard-copy or by QR code.

Let’s change the conversation. The arts mean business. Learn more about the AEP6 study:
