I Will Look Forward to this Later 

The Great Man is dead.


The family of Wyatt Holloway, American novelist, squints into the light where his shadow used to be. What is his legacy, and is it possible to create a new, better order of things? I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO THIS LATER is a bitingly funny and tragic examination of art-making and evolution. Inspired by Kabuki theater and interviews with our mentors, The Assembly and a multigenerational ensemble ponder the mysteries of bourbon, coffee, and what makes a meaningful life.

I Will Look Forward To This Later was commissioned by the 2015-2016 Archive Residency with IRT and the New Ohio Theatre.
