Mongrel by Adam Tran.

I appreciate your silence: terror will do that

In the 12th and 13th centuries, the Mongols swept across the world, led by a charismatic and powerful leader, crushing all resistance in their path, folding the conquered peoples into their empire.

Now, you the audience, with your town under siege, have the opportunity to plead your case before the Khan himself.  But first you’ll need some advice from the Khan’s most trusted adviser.

This world premiere solo show plays outdoors at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum.

For those unable to join us in person, video on demand tickets are now available.

10 words: The Great Khan requests an audience.

Rated: R
(Adult language and situations, including graphic descriptions of violence.)

Run Time: About 70 minutes.

This production made possible with sponsorship support from the
Morse & Betty Johnson Family Foundation.

Welcome Experiment Wednesday performances made possible thanks to
Judge Mark P. Painter (Ret.)

Mongrel was originally performed at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

(1763 Hamilton Cleves Rd.Hamilton, OH 45013).

We’ll be performing near The Lodge.

When you enter, stop at the gate house to confirm your ticket, then follow signs to “The Lodge/Ancient Sculpture Museum.” There will also be signs that indicate “Mongrel: This Way!”

Ample parking is available at the Ancient Sculpture museum, then the Lodge is a short walk down a hill and through an arbor. Walk past the Lodge and you’ll see the performance space!

Drop off for patrons with mobility concerns is available at the lodge. Please contact us for additional information!

The trip from the entrance of Pyramid Hill to the performance space can take 10-15 minutes, so please account for that additional travel time.

All show times are EDT (-4 GMT).

Due to the surge in the Delta Variant of Covid-19, masks will be required for in person attendance.
