Meadows Theatre: The Rep: Big Love by Charles Mee

Directed by Isaac McGinley.

Of this modern retelling of Aeschylus’s story of the 50 daughters of Danaus who run away from an arranged marriage with their cousins, The Guardian said, “Chuck Mee shakes up fragments of an ancient Greek trilogy, adds some 21st century preoccupations, and serves it up, with a knowing wink, on the Italian Riviera.” It’s delightful, witty, athletic, coolly ironic, and ... fiercely entertaining!

WORLD PREMIERE! Directed by Ezra Bookman.

In a world of hypnotic rhythms, unpredictable characters and lyrical language, we are introduced to Joya, who is “staring at the world until it cracks to reveal what’s in the interstices .... magic – pure hoodoo.” Interim is a marvelously seductive challenge to conventional structure, language and characterization by Barbara Cassidy, whose work has been seen at Flea Theatre, Little Theatre, Dixon Place, the New York International Fringe Festival and Bric Studios.

Directed by Aneesha Kudtarkar.

Described variously as searingly funny, disturbing, generous, merciless, sympathetic and engrossing, this play explores the complicated story of a Salvadoran nanny and the Anglo lawyer she works for as it open-heartedly examines the prejudices and misconceptions between two cultures. It asks: How do we make someone “the other”? What is the cost of doing so?

The program will feature texts about the music that informs and accompanies our lives – music that is sometimes expected and obvious, and sometimes surprising and only subtly present. Our special guests on this concert will be the singers of the Garland High School Acappella Choir, under the direction of Cheryl Wilson.
