Best known as the author of “The House of Blue Leaves,” “Six Degrees of Separation” and the screenplay for “Atlantic City,” John Guare is an Irish-American playwright with a sense of oddly realistic whimsy that’s only matched by his erudite language and his gutsy pragmatism.

Trans director Yance Ford won a Special Jury Prize for Storytelling at last year’s Sundance Film Festival for “Strong Island,” his intimate and intense documentary. The film will screen 7 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Lightbox Film Center (formerly International House). The event is free with an RSVP.

MJ Kaufman is one of American theater’s most insistent and crucial new artists — one whose work exists in a time when risk, dare and sociopolitical polemic is a necessity.

It only means you should look harder and with deeper appreciation. We chatted with the playwright ahead of the big premiere.
