Directed by Alia Tavakolian
Yours Truly is a man whose psychic visions safeguard his fellow citizens in the oddball small town of Marmalade. Yet he never gets recognition for anything he does – which makes him dangerous. The shaky geography between ego and self-esteem, spirit and body is explored in this wicked and eccentric dark comedy.
Alia Tavakolian is a 2012 graduate of the BFA program at SMU and works locally in Dallas as a director. This is her second year as a director in New Visions, New Voices.
A spring playwriting festival in its 19th season, New Visions, New Voices will present one performance each of seven full-length plays written by students graduating from the Division of Theatre. The festival is produced by SMU Associate Professor and Head of Theatre Studies Gretchen Smith.
