Demeter in the City
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Demeter in the City summons the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone to enact a timeless ritual of separation, abandonment, reunion and emancipation. Pulitzer-Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl has created a poetic adaptation inspired by real-life stories of young mothers, political activists, army recruits, social workers and undergraduate students, and Shishir Kurup directs a cast of professional actors and community members. In this high-spirited collaboration, Demeter is 20 years old and on drugs, the state has taken away her baby, and someone's gonna pay. Flash forward 20 years and her daughter Persephone loves a man who's taking her straight to Hell.
