It's the year 2051, and Adam is attending your funeral. He even dressed up, sort of. He wore a tie. He doesn't do theater anymore. Doesn't dance. Doesn't write music or play it. He doesn't see shows and doesn't care to.
For the last maybe thirty-five years Adam has been collecting objects and putting them into glass jars. Each jar has one object, something special to some person: a photograph or pen or a book of matches. Each person was a friend, all of them dead now. Tiny apartment but must be hundreds, maybe a thousand of these jars.
Adam Sultan is a speculative biography -- the story not of a person (though Adam is plenty real and well-known to many of us), but of a dimming community, as seen through Adam's dimming eyes.
A full production is scheduled for 2013, but for Fusebox 2012, we'll try to give a sense of how the story begins.
If you bring an object, we'll give it a jar.
