"We are still talking about it." Mary, Birmingham
In C.S. Lewis' THE GREAT DIVORCE veteran Broadway actors bring some of Lewis' quirkiest, hopelessly flawed but still worth redeeming characters to life on stage in 90 humorous, witty and enchanting minutes.
Showcased in an imaginative stage design that transforms the world of the play from bleak and dark to lush and beautiful, THE GREAT DIVORCE takes audiences on a fabulous bus ride from a suburb in Hell to a celestial new world on the outskirts of Heaven.
Fellowship for Performing Arts is best known for its nationwide theatrical hit sensation, THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS. And THE GREAT DIVORCE—featuring the keen observation of human frailties and profound supernatural insights that are C. S. Lewis' trademarks— makes the perfect choice for FPA's newest production.
"Our challenge was to turn a complex theological fantasy into an accessible stage adaptation that entertains and provokes lively discussion," says FPA Founder and Artistic Director Max McLean.
World Magazine found it up to the task: "Max McLean's stage production of THE GREAT DIVORCE rises to the challenge, raising questions of eternal significance with disarming ease."

Chaos is an original performance that uniquely blurs the line between theater and dance. While maintaining the distinct narrative nature of traditional theater, Chaos builds on the rough and instinctive physical expressions of its performers to generate a staging of fluid and vivid action that captures and excites the psyche.
Chaos is both a play, and a postmodern dance piece. It has a story, but the themes, values and messages are not bound by the doctrine of drama. It is a carefully choreographed history of the human condition. It is a metaphor for transformation and love, embodied and elusive. It is an imaginative flash of the subtle, the curious, the undefined. Chaos cannot be exhaustively explained, only witnessed.

She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.

The newest Wooster Group work, Early Shaker Spirituals: A Record Album Interpretation is a performance based on a 1976 LP of Shaker hymns, marches, anthems, and testimony recorded by Sister R. Mildred Barker and the sisters of the Shaker community in Sabbathday Lake, Maine.
Early Shaker Spirituals features performances of all twenty tracks from side A of the album sung by Cynthia Hedstrom, Elizabeth LeCompte, Frances McDormand, and Suzzy Roche. The performers channel the voices of the Shaker singers to give a new live rendering of the songs. Complementing the songs are dances created by the Group. They are composed of simple patterns inspired by the surviving fragments of the ecstatic dance that characterized the Shakers' worship services. For the dances, the singers are joined by Matthew Brown, Modesto Jimenez, Bobby McElver, Bebe Miller and Andrew Schneider. Jamie Poskin reads from the album liner notes.
