Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
Adapted by Linda Hartinian. From the novel by Philip K. Dick.

Cast: 5m., 7w. In his New York Times review Mel Gussow wrote, "In Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said, Jason Taverner, a celebrated television and singing star, wakes up one morning to discover that his identity has been obliterated. Nobody knows his fame and all computer data on him have been purged...Taverner has been magically transported to a parallel world, a favorite device of the late science-fiction author." America has become a police state and Taverner could be arrested and sent to a labor camp. Felix Buckman, the policeman of the title, is convinced Taverner is plotting against the authority of the state—why else would he destroy all documentation of his identity? This intense, bizarre, and fast-paced work explores identity and the recognition of love, loss and grief. Area staging.
