Maker of Worlds, a convention-bending, female-empowering, myth-reclaiming play by Wendy A. Schmidt, will premiere as part of the Dream Up Festival at Theater for the New City on September 2 with consecutive performances through September 7. Jeri Frederickson directs versatile actress Amy Gorelow in this funny absurdist play that ranges from comedy to pathos.
Martha, a deity, decides to destroy the world because there's no good left in it. A second deity disguised as her yoga instructor proposes fighting the system instead. But Martha's husband Warren built the system, and somewhere on another plane, Martha is still in love with Jim Morrison. One woman plays six characters in this play about creativity, capitalism, and the divine in all of us.
