About this show

Project Y teams up with The New Orleans Theatre Experiment (N.O.T.E.) to co-produce Thérèse Raquin Desire, an original one-woman show about what happens when a silent and solitary woman decides to act on impulse and desire. Inspired by the famous title character of Emile Zola's novel, Thérèse Raquin, this innovative show mixes original sound, video, and choreography to give new life to one of literature's most surprising murderers. In this show, the audience knows the details of Thérèse's crime - planning and carrying out the murder of her husband in order to live a life of freedom with her lover. In Thérèse Raquin Desire, the story is told by Thérèse herself, creating a fragmented and poetic journey through the landscape of a mind sorting through the pieces of a mixed-race heritage, an awakening sexual need, and so deep and great a desire to be loved that even murder is an option.
