    The Buddha - In His Own Words

    Presented by at BCA Plaza Theatre

    March 25 - April 4, 2009


    The Buddha - In His Own Words

    The world premiere of the moving and enlightening one-man play "The Buddha -In His Own Words" debuts in Boston at the Plaza Black Box Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA), before moving to the Cambridge Family YMCA Theatre. Performances in Boston and Cambridge run from March 25 through April 12. The life of the Buddha in his own words - the evolution of his thought, his triumphs, and the rarely portrayed tragedy at the end of his life. The man we know as the Buddha lived in Northern India around 500BC and introduced the teaching known as Buddhism. Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was written down, carried and copied throughout Asia, and this canon became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition. Framed in a most unusual and personal context, actor and playwright Evan Brenner brings his original one-man play to the stage, presenting these authentic texts and enacting the extraordinary life of the man, start to finish. It's no dry tale - the Buddha's life stands among the great archetypal adventure stories. After work-shopping the show in the Boston-area for the past two years, the New York City-based producers (Buddha Play Productions) of "The Buddha - In His Own Words"? are pleased to officially open the show in the city in which it was developed.
