The Projects in Dramaturgy class presents some of the texts from Churchill and ideas that inspired us this semester. We're combining cuttings and sequences from plays like Vinegar Tom, Love and Information, Mouthful of Birds, ding dong the wicked, Top Girls, and Fen, plus we're stirring in writing of our own and found text. The workshop is a process of exploration and sharing, sometimes book in hand, sometimes in movement, but all phases of the performance come from passion for the different potentials and combinations of live performance and dramatic text.
Seating Limited; free.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, written by Tennessee Williams, is an iconic American play that follows Blanche DuBois as she attempts to find hope for stability and a refuge from her haunting past in her reunion with sister, Stella. However, Stella’s new life with husband Stanley in their modest home situated in the French Quarter of New Orleans unsettles Blanche, unearths her troubled path, introduces new but fleeting love with a man named Mitch, and eventually leads to a traumatizing confrontation with Stanley.
This play features complex characters full of beautiful contradictions, challenging subject matter, and rich scene work.
Please note that this play contains both domestic and sexual violence.
