Video Work: Documentation Of "Clara's Old Man" (Tour Rehearsal)


This video documents a tour rehearsal of “Clara’s Old Man” on September 28, 1972, at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club. The production was written by Ed Bullins, directed by Allie Woods, and performed by the Jarboro Company. “Clara’s Old Man” was produced as one of five one-acts by Ed Bullins, which were presented alongside Richard Wesley’s “Black Terror,” on the Jarboro Company’s October 1972 tour of Italy. Video documentation of tour rehearsals of “Black Terror” and Bullins’ other four one-acts, referred to as “Short Bullins,” is contained on Reels B60, B62, and B63 in La MaMa’s collection. This video was originally shot using a Portapak camera.
