Victory Gardens Adds Ameriville, Oedipus el Rey to 2011-2012 Season
Ameriville, written and performed by Universes, and developed with and directed by Victory Gardens' artistic director Chay Yew, will play January 27-February 26, with an opening on February 6. This exploration of the American experience prowls the dark corners of our contemporary landscape and asks, "If Hurricane Katrina happened again, would we be ready?"
Luis Alfaro's Oedipus el Rey, also directed by Yew, will play June 29-July 29, with an opening on July 9. This reboot of the daddy of all tragedies is set amid the sizzling rhythms and explosive violence of a California barrio, and follows a family of ex-cons through the vicious cycle of fate and violence in which they find themselves trapped.
