Rae sees herself as independent, romantic, and unlike everyone else. So when the world thrusts a strange new identity on her, just because she’s had a baby, she fights it with every fiber of her being. Until adventure abruptly reappears into her life, leaving her to create a connection with her child, on her terms.
Susan Bernfield's play BARKING GIRL was developed at the 2003 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. Chrysalis Theatre Company’s production will be the play’s World Premiere.
About the Company: Chrysalis Theatre Company
CHRYSALIS THEATRE COMPANY is a new company dedicated to the creative development of new work and old works that deserve a new perspective for a modern audience. We are an artistic community dedicated to creating vital, transformative theater that has use and meaning in our everyday lives. We all spend so much time engaged alone with a piece of technology that we have lost our connection with other human beings. Chrysalis views live theater as a way for us to reconnect with one another.
Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm with an additional performance on Monday, November 19 at 7:30pm. No performances November 21-25.
