Written & Performed by Romana Soutus, Directed by Rachel Levens

Hyena is an interactive and visceral solo show about the beast within. Hy examines questions of intimacy, femininity and vulnerability as she attempts to find ways to navigate the painful world in which we live, while toeing the line between her public and private self. Join her as she discovers the darkest parts of herself.

La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club will present the World Premiere of Romana Soutus’ solo show HYENA, directed by Rachel Levens for a limited engagement March 18-27 at The Club at La MaMa (74A East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery) with performances on Friday and Saturday at 10pm and Sunday at 6pm. Tickets ($18/$13 students & seniors) are available online at www.lamama.org or by calling 646-430-5374. The show runs approximately 75 minutes, with no intermission 

The production team will include Costume Design by Lizzie Donelan, Lighting Design by Cecilia Durbin, Music by Gareth Hobbs, and Set Design by Joey Mendoza and Associate Set Designer Vincent Gunn with Production Manager Amy R. Surratt and Stage Manager Kathryn Meister.
