"Original and compelling." "Engrossing." "Startling." "Soul-searching." "Gripping." "Timely." These are just some of the words the Los Angeles Times used to describe Lee Blessing's play, Going to St. Ives. Mr. Blessing makes his Primary Stages debut with this tension-packed play that pits individual responsibility against the power of the state. The mother of a monstrous dictator in sub-Saharan Africa questions the very nature of her motherhood while on a medical visit to the UK. Starring Tony Award®-winner L. Scott Caldwell (Joe Turner's Come and Gone) & Vivienne Benesch, Blessing's 2-character play haunts us at our deepest levels. Maria Mileaf directs.
