— Centenary Stage Company closes the annual Fringe Festival with the award winning My Name is Gideon: I’m Probably Going to Die, Eventually, November 16 through 19 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center.

After sold out performances in New York City and 5 stars from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gideon Irving a theatrical couch – surfing troubadour brings his incredibly unique solo show to Hackettstown. Irving, who has hopped from one town to the next on bike, rollerblades, and automobiles, performing and sleeping in 504 homes of perfect strangers, now invites audiences to his own living room on stage. With a host of eclectic instruments, astonishing stories, warm charm and an infectious sense of humor Irving casts a spell that transports audiences out of this world. The NY Times review notes, “It’s a mishmash of twangy songs and stories about his mother, his friends and his travels. Other odds and ends are tossed in: jokes, audience participation, a magic trick… There’s charm in that shagginess, and in Mr. Irving’s folksy and welcoming manner”

Performances for My Name is Gideon: I’m Probably Going to Die, Eventually are Thursday, November 16 at 7:30PM; Friday, November 17 at 8:00PM; Saturday, November 18 at 8:00PM and Sunday, November 19 at 2:00PM.
