WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
La MaMa Presents the New York Premiere of Shakespeare's Sister (or La Vie Matérielle).
Irina Brook continues her father Peter's tradition at La MaMa with Shakespeare's Sister (or La Vie Matérielle), which adapts Virginia Woolf's A Room Of One's Own and Marguerite Duras' La Vie Matérielle. The work is set at a fantasy dinner party, where five women prepare the cuisine while singing, dancing and discussing their place in the world.
This production features a diverse ensemble including OBIE-winner Winsome Brown as Virginia Woolf, former French Vogue editor Joan Juliet Buck as Maugerite Duras, actress Nicole Ansari, concert violin soloist Yibin Li, and British singer/songwriter Sadie Jemmett.
