Holidays gone wrong, messy love, a word from a human sacrifice, and of course — SMACKDOWN!!
Join us for a venturesome new season:
A Gertrude Stein Christmas directed by JK Phillips and devised by the ensemble from Gertrude Stein‘s play Turkey and Bones and Eating and We Liked It. A brand new work based on a nearly-100-year-old text by a literary giant. If you’ve ever felt like an expatriate at your own family holidays, “A Gertrude Stein Christmas” will ring a few bells. At the Minnesota Fringe, August 2-12 in Minneapolis.
The Clean House, by Sarah Ruhl directed by Carolyn Levy. A cleaner who hates to clean, a doctor whose husband is struck down by love for a patient, and the quest for the perfect joke. Sarah Ruhl is a winner of the MacArthur Foundation Genius grant. Her plays include Eurydice and In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play. Award-winning director Carolyn Levy last worked with Theatre Unbound on best-seller The Good Fight. November 3-18, 2018 at Gremlin Theatre in St. Paul.
24:00:00 Xtreme Theatre Smackdown 2019. Dozens of the Twin Cities’ most bad-ass women theatre artists race the clock to create six new plays in the course of a single day. One night only! January 12, 2019 at SteppingStone Theatre in St. Paul.
Iphigenia and Other Daughters, by Ellen McLaughlin directed by Taous Khazem. The women of Greek tragedy speak out: Cassandra, who kills her husband for using her favorite daughter, Iphigenia, as a human sacrifice. Iphigenia, who was killed so that the gods would make the wind blow. Electra, who is determined to avenge her father’s murder. Chrysothemis, nobody’s favorite, who somehow keeps everything going. McLaughlin is well-known for her adaptation of Greek drama, including The Trojan Women and Ajax in Iraq. Taous Khazem most recently worked with us on Silkworms, where she appeared as the Prioress. February 23-March 10, 2019 at the Gremlin in St. Paul.
