DON JUAN COMES BACK FROM THE WAR by Odon von Horath, translated by Christopher Hampton, directed by Tim Butterfield
December 8, 7:00 p.m.; December 10, 9:30 p.m.; December 11, 3:00 p.m.
Don Juan, the notorious philanderer and survivor of the trenches, returns from the front to a world composed of women - only to have his newly found romantic ideal slowly destroyed with each encounter as he desperately searches for his one true love.
MEDEA by Euripides, translated by Michael Collier and Georgia Machemer, directed by Kathryn McHugh
December 8, 9:30 p.m.; December 9, 7:00 p.m.; December 11, 7:00 p.m.
Euripides’ play of a queen abandoned by her husband for another results in the desperate and powerful act of her killing her own sons. This staging incorporates butoh movement to provide new insight into this classic tragedy.
THE COUNTRY by Martin Crimp, directed by Paul Takacs
December 9, 9:30 p.m.; December 10, 7:00 p.m.; December 11, 9:30 p.m.
Who is the comatose woman Richard has found on the roadside? Why has he brought her into his house? Exactly who is telling the truth and who is lying? THE COUNTRY is a spare, well-crafted dissection of desire and despair.
