EURYDICE

by Sarah Ruhl

Directed by Carolyn Anderson

Written by Pulitzer Prize nominee and MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship winner Sarah Ruhl, this play explores the classic myth of Orpheus retold from the heroine’s point of view. On the day Eurydice is to marry Orpheus, her love, a tragic misstep sends her to a surreal Underworld where memories are forbidden and where she has an unexpected reunion with her dead father. When Orpheus finds her, she must decide whether to remain with her father or return to her Earthly love.


FALL SEMINAR PRODUCTION

All performances at 8pm except Sunday matinees which are at 2pm

The Women

by Clare Boothe Luce

Directed by Alma Becker

THE WOMEN is a social satire of high society wives trading secrets and sometimes husbands in this sparkling entertainment, rife with venom-laced dialogue spouted by twenty-two actors playing forty fabulous female characters. A smart and saucy classic comedy that proudly wears its age, born on Broadway in 1937, dressed in diamonds and pearls, party dresses and negligees, or simply basking in a bubble bath. THE WOMEN requires a fresh look at the slogan "You've come a long way, baby." And raises the question, "How far is 'long?'


WORKSHOP PRODUCTIONS

The workshop program provides students with the opportunity to explore their interests in acting, directing and playwriting. Each semester, students develop theater projects in consultation with a faculty advisor, culminating with performances in the Rehearsal Studios. Workshops are generally in Studio A on the second floor of the JKB Theater at 8pm unless otherwise noted.
