May 1 – 9
Opening Night: May 2
In the magic-comic On the Lake, playwright Reza de Wet revisits Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, with an eye on exposing the tensions beneath the surface of the Chekhovian world. Zooming in on Constantine’s symbolist play-within-the-play, de Wet imagines the experience from Nina’s perspective: a dreamlike vision of the future, where the hope of escape is linked directly to the potential for the theater itself to rise up and fly away.
By Reza de Wet
