WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In 1901, August Strindberg wrote a fairy tale about a dreamer discovering what it feels like to be human. In 2018, Egg & Spoon Theatre Collective sets out to illuminate this fantastical, bizarre journey in an utterly contemporary mode. Agnes, daughter of the gods, descends to earth and experiences the human world in all its beauty, sorrow, and contradiction. Is joy extricable from pain? What can we do to improve our collective experience? Is it possible to live a meaningful life in a messy, nonsensical world? Join Agnes in a bedtime story for the millennial age.
