Diana Oh Wants to Sleep with You at the Ancram Opera House [Berkshire on Stage]


Iconoclastic actor/singer-songwriter/theatermaker/artist Diana Oh, known for her provocative street installations that evolved into {my lingerie play}, a New York Times Critics’ Pick, will bring her singular style to the Ancram Opera House in an evening that is equal parts theater, rock concert, party and audience participation. The performance begins at 8:30pm on Saturday (August 25).

A “multi-talented dynamo of a performer – raw, funny, honest” (Vulture), Oh is critically acclaimed as one of New York’s most daring and original theater artists; The Wall Street Journal called her “badass.” Her nonconformist, category-defying work provokes conversations about topics ranging from gender identity, to societally enabled male violence, to systemic racial oppression (all of which she acutely feels as someone who identifies as a queer Korean-American woman). She is frequently compared to theater artist and MacArthur “Genius” Award Winner Taylor Mac.

Audiences are invited to extend the concert experience at a post-show “Sleepover” with the artist at the Ancram Opera House. It will be the first of a series of immersive, improvisatory performances exploring connection, joy and radical vulnerability, which Oh has scheduled at theaters across the country. A light dinner and continental breakfast are included in the ticket price, but the Sleepover is limited to 20 participants and reservations are essential.
