New Visions Directors' Festival opens Wednesday!
Don't miss this showcase of rarely produced, avant-garde theatre pieces, staged by some of our most promising up-and-coming theatre artists. The festival includes two evenings, presented in repertory. Attend both and save! See below for details.
Iphigenia and Other Daughters
by Ellen McLaughlin
directed by Danielle Barlow

"The world will never forgive us if we do not make sense of it."
McLaughlin’s modern adaptation of the legend of Agamemnon and the aftermath of the Trojan War offers a bold, provocative feminist perspective on a story of lust, fury, sacrifice and rebellion. The "good girl" of the bloodiest family in Greek legend, Iphigenia is sent in a time of suffering and war as a sacrifice to appease the gods. She is saved at the eleventh hour, but by then her family has spiraled into vengeful obsession and self-destruction, leaving her to seek her own path from the wreckage.
Wed, March 20 — 7 p.m.
Thu, March 21 — 10 p.m.
Fri, March 22 — 7 p.m.
Sat, March 23 — 10 p.m.
Sun, March 24 — 2 p.m.

Rough for Theatre II
by Samuel Beckett

Discover the possibilities of four audience members, two bureaucrats, and a talking stick. Three of Muhlenberg’s most accomplished student directors present an evening of life, death, and absurdity—three plays that explore the topography of the world in our heads, the anxiety of forging a path through it, and the uncertainty that lies beyond.

Wed, Mar. 20, 10 p.m.
Thu, Mar. 21, 7 p.m.
Fri, Mar. 22, 10 p.m.
Sat, Mar. 23, 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
