An Acorn

by Caridad Svich

29 January - 1 February 2020

Theater and Performance Studies Program

Propelled by the threat of environmental catastrophe, one traveler leaves home in search of their voice, lost in the rubble of a battered world. This journey takes us through the wreckage of time and history in pursuit of the memory of what earth once was… Haunting, surprising, and poignant: in the face of irreversible environmental damage, An Acorn uncovers a small kernel of hope. Originally commissioned by the American Blues Theater in Chicago, this highly poetic play by a leading Latinx writer, directed by a double major in TPST and Anthropology, activates creative collaboration for a talented team of student artists at Georgetown. Come imagine change…

Hedda Gabbler

by Henrik Ibsen

13 February - 22 February 2020

Mask & Bauble Dramatic Society

Henrik Ibsen's most famous antiheroine has fascinated audiences for over 120 years in this captivating play that defined modern psychological drama. Set in a changing 20th-century America, this modern adaptation finds a young Hedda trapped in a loveless marriage. To compound her misery, the comfortable lifestyle she had dreamt of is threatened by the return of her former lover, now a promising academic in competition with her new husband. Desperate to maintain what little agency over her life she still has, Hedda begins to manipulate those around her, with tragic results. Hedda Gabler is a masterclass on the dangers of power, as it explores themes of pain, lust, co-dependency, and love.

John

by Annie Baker

19 March - 28 March 2020

nomadictheatre

The week after Thanksgiving. A Bed & Breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A cheerful innkeeper. A young couple struggling to stay together. Thousands of inanimate objects, watching. A simple enough description, but Annie Baker's fascinating play takes a look at what theatre can be and builds a world all its own. Baker's hyper-realism bleeds into the eerily super-natural in this quiet tale, where actors and audiences alike delve into ideas of self, mortality, and the solitude of human experience.

The Rover

by Aphra Behn

26 March - 4 April 2020

Theater and Performance Studies Program

Festive and bold, this Restoration comedy by the first professional female playwright (a British spy!) explores gender, class and cultural crossings with wit. Set during Carnivale in Venice, as Spanish and Italian revelers cross paths with English cads seeking money and mates, this proto-feminist play is full of music, masks and bold windows on diverse double standards, as characters duel (and desire) their rights. Our adaptation stages a poetic space inspired by the Silk Road, where cultures cross, as do past and present, pop and high cultures, dreams and audacity.
