STILL

A Yale Drama Series award winning play written by Jen Silverman
directed by Emlyn Doolittle
Forty-one-year old Morgan’s baby has been born dead, eighteen-year-old Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn’t want, and failed midwife Elena is seeking either redemption or a career change. As both women confront their fears, their desires, and each other, dead baby Constantinople roams the world, searching for the meaning of the word “wow,” a satisfying explanation of S&M, and above all, his mother.

FUN HOME (based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel)

Music by Jeanine Tesori
Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
directed by Christopher Grabowski
senior project members: Rahul Makwana, Henery Wyand
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

(PAST -- Spring 2019) the seagull

by Anton Chekhov in a new translation written by Sadie Frank '19*

we need new forms. if we can’t have them, it’s better to have nothing. summer heat. a dead bird. the struggle to make art. kostya puts on a play. the play goes a little wrong. his mother doesn’t like it. what’s it about? the girl from across the lake wants to be an actress. the famous writer just wants to go fishing. everybody wants to be somebody they’re not. nobody’s in love with the person they should be. Chekhov hid backstage at the premiere because no one understood his play. not much has changed.

Directed by Allison Breeze '19*
*Senior Project Members: Jacqui Anders '19, Allison Breeze '19, Emily Drossell '19, Raphe Gilliam '19, George Luton '19, , Lindsay Matheos '19,
An inventor and her colleague venture to the frozen wasteland at the top of the world to research the arctic circle’s prehistoric inhabitants, hoping that they may discover the secret to curing the epidemic that is plaguing their city. They convince an investor to join them and assemble a crew with tangled histories. Haunted by figures from their intertwining past, the members of this expedition wrestle with capital interest, scientific absolutism and spiritual fulfillment as they encounter both precious minerals and deadly plagues entrapped within the ice, and the northern lights shine overhead.
