"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break."  - Chinese Proverb

CURTAIN UP! 2016

Fusing the mysteries and power of the original text with the gender and racial politics of the American south, and speaking directly to current anxieties about sexuality and immigration, LOUISIANA BACCHAE brings ancient Greek theatre face to face with contemporary America.

COMING IN OCTOBER

 


 


Whitechapel
London     November    1888


When Mary Jane Kelly seeks refuge in the Ten Bells, she's behind in her rent, her window is broken, she has lost her key, and she's alone. It's 1888... not a good time to be poor and "unfortunate" on the streets of London. Somewhere out there in the foggy shadows, one of the world's most notorious criminals is at work.

Featuring 
Kelly Meg Brennan
