by Jackie Sibblies-Drury
Directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh
The boundaries between artand life blur when six earnest actors attempt to portray a forgotten historical tragedy –– and find it impossible to keep things from getting personal. How can we ethically represent people who are different from us? The beauty is in the trying...but so is the danger.
