FEFU AND HER FRIENDS
Off-Broadway: Theatre for a New Audience @ Polonsky Shakespeare Center
Written by María Irene Fornés
Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz
Cast includes: Brittany Bradford, Juliana Canfield, Helen Cespedes, Jennifer Lim, Ronete Levenson, Lindsay Rico, Amelia Workman, and Carmen Zilles
Fefu and Her Friends, one of the most beloved and discussed plays of the late Cuban-American dramatist María Irene Fornés, tells the story of a group of intelligent, outgoing young women who have so internalized male views of their sex that they lash out indirectly in mysterious ways. A classic of both feminist and environmental theater, Fefu splits its audience into groups that move around to different locations in the theater. The women’s fascinatingly enigmatic gathering at a New England country house in 1935 is seen through multiple perspectives and degrees of intimacy.

Written by Stephen Brown
Directed by Sarah Norris
Cast includes: Lisa Jill Anderson, Marcia DeBonis, Xavier Rodney, Will Sarratt
A typical day in the life of Tommy involves triple shot lattes, pining over the manager at Starbucks, and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months and your mom won’t stop force-feeding you Pop Tarts. But when a well-meaning, if somewhat dysfunctional, “art therapist” shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss. Everything is Super Great explores the different ways we cope with grief, and how letting someone in helps us with letting something go.

Fires in the Mirror was Anna Deavere Smith’s groundbreaking response. Birthed from a series of interviews with over fifty members of the Jewish and Black communities, the Drama Desk award-winning work translated their voices verbatim, and in the process revolutionized the genre of documentary theatre.
