A Love Letter to Ellen McLaughlin May 19, 2012

by Katie W

First, you have to understand that last weekend I got to play bocce ball with Ellen McLaughlin.  And that our team won.  It was an informal gathering for the annual Hedgebrook Women Playwrights Festival, of which she is a two-time alum.  I was completely theatre geeking out.

The Gurs Zyklus May 18, 2012

by Julia

The order to execute Garcia Lorca is given by Morse code says the balding man in the white shirt with the commanding, operatic stage presence (director, writer and performer, Rinde Eckert). The three women in black sing the Morse code. The words appear on the screens above with the dots and dashes but they are not about execution they are about coffee.

The Gurs Zyklus May 18, 2012

by Ruth Lockwood

I think I heard some of the best sounds I've ever heard last night, and they're indescribable.  The sounds of voices, piano, fire organ and water, all in service to a spectral place.  The Gurs Zyklus is nominally about the town of Gurs, which was a waystation for prisoners on their way to death camps in WWII,

somewhere, in the midst of a sum, some parts. May 4, 2012

by Caitlin Sullivan

A woman enters the room, holding a pepper and begins to eat. The act exists somewhere between consuming and being consumed. A pair of eyes invite me in. Juice comes as a drip, a dribble, a stream; consecrating chin, shirt, skirt, floor, space.

It is impossibly red.

Language comes similarly. A drip/dribble/stream/scream. Her voice, ours, mine.

Rouge: challenging and compelling May 4, 2012

by MikeM

    As it proceeds, Rouge develops a very strange stuck-in-your-ear quality, like a catchy song. A certain spoken phrase, for sure, will echo in the viewer's head, and possibly cause one to jolt and grin when hearing it spoken out there in the post-show world.
