Lady in Denmark | STANDBY ONLY
In this one-woman show, Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandermsith takes us through the life of Helene, a Danish American woman, who in the wake of her husband’s death, finds solace in the music of Billie Holiday. Known for her darkly poetic style and piercing insight into human psychology, Orlandersmith weaves a narrative that explores jazz, family and the end of life.
The Amateurs | STANDBY ONLY
Mr. Larking is God. Or at least he's playing God in a 14th century production of the story of Noah’s flood. As his co-stars prepare to perform for the Duke, the crew is plagued by deadlines, a fear of the Black Death and a secret that could divide them all. The Amateurs is a comic tale of plagues, purpose and the origins of creativity.
Rödvinsvänster (Red Wine-Leftists): 1977
Kyle, an auto worker from Reynolds, Wisconsin, has been chosen by his union to travel to socialist Sweden to see how Volvo has reimagined the assembly line for its workers. The play is part of a trilogy from Rebecca Gilman that also includes Soups, Stews, and Casseroles: 1976, which will be produced in the Owen Theatre this spring. Presented in English, the reading will feature members of Sweden’s Göteborgs Dramatiska Teater.
