The Subtle Body
Thursday, August 16th --> 8pm @ Jack
505 1/2 Waverly Ave. (Atlantic & Fulton)
Free Admission, but limited seating!
Meet John Floyer, eccentric, dyspeptic, and idealistic--sometimes to the point of delusion.
His work to date, "A History of Cold Bathing, Both Ancient and Modern" hasn't won him much renown, so he's off to China to make his name.
There he "discovers" pulse diagnosis--nevermind the Chinese have known about it for centuries. Meanwhile his wife is making a few discoveries of her own...
A few refreshments will be served after the reading to encourage you to stick around and give us your feedback. As space is limited, PLEASE RSVP using the following link: http://thesubtlebody.eventbrite.com/
Subtitles will be provided for all dialogue in Mandarin. For more information about the play, including a complete bibliography of John Floyer, click here.
