Theater Ninjas is touring Northeastern Ohio this Fall to present Obie Award-winning playwright Erin Courtney's Black Cat Lost, a tragicomic collage of loss, remembrance and transcendence. The multi-venue tour is a first for the Ninjas, a nomadic troupe known for transforming nontraditional spaces into singular, theatrical experiences.

Sliding between the philosophical and the personal, the intimate Black Cat Lost uses poetic movement and sound to meditate on the beauty of our impermanent relationships with the world and each other. Courtney’s dynamic text draws on zen poetry, silent film imagery, fiction and memoirs to invoke individual and universal themes. Characters and stories appear and disappear with ease, creating a kaleidoscopic view of life, death and the unseen.

Audiences will be invited to participate in different activities and games that deepen the experience of the show. Each unique performance of Black Cat Lost will be shaped by the audience’s own memories, thoughts and voices.
