THE YELLOW WALLPAPER
By Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Adapted by Sandy Nelson
15th – 20th June
Adapted by Benny Young
Those whom the Gods would punish first drive mad. Those whom the Gods would test – suffer. Sophocles’ drama about betrayal, deceit and prophesy. Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
22nd – 27th June
MOBY DICK; or THE WHALE
By Herman Melville
Adapted by J.C Marshall
“To sail with such a heathen crew that have small touch of human mothers in them! Whelped somewhere by the sharkish sea.”
Big book. Big themes. Big whale. Join us for a rollicking shanty-laden adaptation that preserves the vastness of Melville’s language and vision. But with less harpoon tutorials.
29th June – 4th July
By Jean Racine
Adapted by Frances Poet
“He wanted to scratch his way into me and drum his victory tune against my ribs. I will not cry for him.”
Hermione is a beauty, a trophy men could kill for. But her fiancé, Pyrrhus, rejects her for newly widowed Andromaque, who he wants with an animal passion. He would do anything to get her, even threaten the life of her infant son. When Pyrrhus winds up murdered, the two women must answer for it.
This “Classic Cut” version of Racine’s epic tale of passion and murder is retold by its two ferocious female protagonists.
