In a small house in the mountains of Ireland, a lonely spinster locks horns with her house-bound, manipulative mother in a rage-filled battle of the wills. Ireland's most important contemporary playwright, Martin McDonagh's (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan) The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a subversive thriller that takes audiences through the twists and turns of the ultimate dysfunctional relationship, revealing what can happen when family ties go too far…way too far.Twenty years ago, the Druid Theatre Company's production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane, rocked America and Broadway and was nominated for six Tony awards and won four. Druid returns with Tony Award® winning director, Garry Hynes remount of this spectacular production. Marie Mullen, who won the Tony for her performance as the daughter, returns this time in the role of the mother, while Aisling O'Sullivan takes the role of the daughter. Once again, audiences will have the opportunity to experience this masterful play.
"'Mala' means 'bad.' Not that you have done something bad, but that you are, in your core, bad."
Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good, but don't always succeed. A world premiere production by ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show by Melinda Lopez transports us into a world which is uniquely Cuban-American in its specifics, and universal in its power.
An utterly unsentimental journey to the end of life and straight out the other side, Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive right now.
Grounded in Lopez's distinctive emotional language and sharp humor, Mala dances between doctors, work, a mother's growing frailty, a daughter's quest for grace, an epic Boston winter, Arctic icebergs and 911 calls. Built from notes frantically tapped out on an iPhone, Mala forces us to confront the inevitable finality of our
- Communist Budapest. In a dance hall, a musician confesses his private sexual desire for his seven-year-old step-daughter. And his government is taping his every word. Under threat of being exposed as a pedophile, the musician is pressured into becoming a government informant leading to the arrest and murder of his best friend who had been running an anti-Communism underground newspaper.Under Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's increasingly nationalist government, Hungary's cultural scene has been rocked by a rapid return to government control of artistic choice. Béla Pintér and Company is dedicated to creating contemporary productions based on critical and ironic observations of Hungarian society. Employing the company's signature theatrical style, combining folk music, dance, staggering ensemble work, and no-holds-barred theatricality to tell a story of what it is to live between a rock and a hard place in a world where there is no such thing as a right to privacy.
SETU's take on the epic Ramayan this fall is very different from a traditional one. Written by a dozen of our own members covering all seven kands in fifteen scenes, this English production will be both a humanistic and women-centric stage production brought to life by two dozen actors and dancers.
Our humanistic angle places less emphasis on characters' traditional godly attributes but rather approaches characters as relatable, vulnerable human beings. Our colorful stage production accentuates the powerful roles of some of the lesser known women characters – Kaikaye, Urmila, and Surpanakha – just to name a few, and from Rakshasa and Vanara clans. A family friendly show; children will love appearances from the golden deer and life-size queen of Eagle Jatayu, as well as the trial of Sita by fire.
No director. No set. No rehearsals.
A metaphorical work by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed in many cities, but is always unique, thanks to Soleimanpour's rules: Each night of the performance, the audience arrives to a stage set with only a script in a sealed envelope. Every night, a different actor takes the stage, opens the envelope, and reads the script aloud for the first—and last—time.
Join us in discovering the play no one is allowed to talk about.
