Spring Production, The Air Loom

Performing Arts Center

The Air Loom was inspired by the real life story of conspiracist, London tea broker and the first ever documented paranoid schizophrenic, James Tilly Matthews.  The Air Loom tells of how Tilly believed a secret Illuminati were attempting to use their "Air Loom" to control the minds of the entire county and push it over the brink of war.

Drawing just a hint of inspiration from the Steam-punk aesthetic and akin to the blended reality found by such authors as Neil Gaiman and Stephen Moffat, Ohio native and playwright Jim Azelvandre creates a story of one man's lucid madness and political conspiracies, while staggeringly paralleling the political rhetoric we find ourselves in today.

Performances will be held at the Kent State Performing Arts Center.

Saturday, April 8 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, April 9 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $5 at the Performing Arts Center Box Office.
