REBEL AND MISFITS PRODUCTIONS is thrilled to announce their upcoming production of “The Realistic Joneses” by award-winning Will Eno, presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. This is Eno’s first collaboration on a non-traditional staging of his Drama Desk-winning Broadway play.This production, directed by Edward M. Coffield, is the St. Louis premiere of arguably the best work yet from one of America’s most clever and perceptive playwrights of the past decade. In “The Realistic Joneses,” Eno connects two suburban couples who have so much more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities and, ultimately, confront mortality.  Directed by Edward M. Cauffield, Featuring Laurie McConnell*, Isaiah Di Lorenzo, Alan Knoll*, Kelly Hummert* (*member AEA)

This exhibition seeks to highlight two recent acquisitions in the context of a broad collection of textual and illustrated editions of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer from the fifteenth century to the present at the Mercantile Library. We focused on The Canterbury Tales, the Prologue and the stories about them that have inspired generations of artists, and on the important Mercantile acquisitions of the rare Caxton printing of the Tales and a nearly forgotten facsimile of the famous Ellesmere manuscript of the Tales, created in meticulous detail and brilliant color over a century ago.

Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis author and UMSL alum Denise Pattiz Bogard, who will sign and discuss her new novel, "After Elise"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "After Elise" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

"After Elise" is a novel about unexpected tragedy and how it changes the lives of a dysfunctional family while demonstrating that patience, understanding and forgiveness bring hope. Teri Berger’s car skids in the rain, killing twenty-year-old Elise and leaving Teri reeling with guilt and the rest of her family in disarray as they struggle to adjust to this new reality. Already strained family relationships are tested, and Teri’s marriage suffers, her son withdraws, and her daughter faces a heartbreaking decision. "After Elise" confronts readers with the most everyday tragedy—an accident that could happen to anyone—and its effects, changing the lives forever of everyone involved.

Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

 

Meet the Artist

Catch Edo Rosenblith at COCA on the following dates:

 

COCA Community Open House: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11am – 1pm

Drawing Marathon: Saturday, July 14, 2018, 2-4pm
