OUT OF THE ASH | Open: 09/24/15 Close: 10/03/15
Devised from the writings of Sylvia Plath and performed by a dynamic all-female cast, Out of the Ash is an immerisve, multi-media theater experience that welcomes you into The House of Esther, where 5 women are dually dipped in ancient mythology and modern-day domesticity. The audience is invited to follow the women of the house through different rooms, witnessing their lives (present & past) along the way, interlaced throughout with a cocktail hour, horderves and a celebratory dinner party.
The piece explores themes of gender norms, personal identity in society, death, mythologizing oneself and immortality. It’s a celebration and tribute to Plath’s beautiful, evocative words.
