Play | Illusions: An Exercise in Collective Storytelling


Ivan Viripaev's play is an exercise in collective storytelling about people you've never met. Two men and two women untangle the lives of two couples they've never met based on the traces they've left behind: a pile of broken lamps, tattered chairs, and overturned refrigerators, all left to rot and rust on a sidewalk. Except...who left them? Who were these couples? What have they left behind? And who have they left it for? This is a directing thesis production by current student Andrew Freeburg.

Opera | Dark Tale Inspired By a True Story


Follow one woman’s dangerous attempt to escape her life as a member of the FLDS Church (Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints), a sect that split from mainstream Mormonism in the early 20th Century largely because of the LDS Church’s renunciation of polygamy. The male founders of the Mormon faith (Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, chief among them) loom large in American history, but this new show puts the women front and center. The narrative draws inspiration from the flurry of media attention surrounding the two most infamous raids on FLDS compounds (the 1953 raid at Short Creek, AZ and the 2008 raid at the YFZ Ranch in Eldorado, TX) as well as the stories of the over 80 wives of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. Set against a red-earthed landscape filled with revelations, dark prophets and white temples stretching towards heaven, chart one woman’s quest for self-discovery in a world where personal identity is forbidden. Directed by Laine Rettmer. Conducted by Geoff McDonald. Cast: Betsy Podsiallo, Sofia Durante, Melissa Hartman, Ziwan Nie, Marcella Astore, Meredith Gray, Emily Summers, Gabriella Aguilar, Joohyun Kim, India Rowland, Sunwei Li, Isabel Silva, Luna Park, Carolyn Boulay, Christopher Lau.

Play | Macabre Tale Set in Ireland


It's August 1939. Europe's boiling up to war, but Ireland's having none of it. On a day trip to Drogheda, Dubliner Tadgh Steele is captured by a dairy farmer named Murphy and locked in a cowshed. Is Tadgh a poet as he claims or - as Murphy suspects - a Nazi spy? Makes no difference to Murphy's slop girl Dolly, who falls in love with the handsome stranger and casts him as the hero in her mind's eye. But there's only one way off the farm. Directed by Nick Cotz

Lecture | Jewish Life in the Late Ottoman Empire


The picnic blanket is lumpy, the ants bite, the food is sandy: but you see so much more when you're eating on the ground. The picnic and the portable camera came of age together in late and post Ottoman society, and "vernacular" picnic photographs are a ubiquitous feature of the Sephardic photo album. This essay converses with the children, women, men, and objects that appear in these images, considering how Sephardic Jews relaxed and ate in nature at a time when so much was shifting around them. It also asks whether the scattered, globally diasporic, family-owned archive of the Sephardic photo album can be united to restore a lived, dusty, lusty image of late and post-Ottoman Jewish life. Speaker Sarah Abrevaya Stein is the Sady and Ludwig Kahn Director of the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies, and the Viterbi Family Chair in Mediterranean Jewish Studies at UCLA.

Play | Servant Stories from Acclaimed American Play


Ronan Noone's Thirst is set during Eugene O'Neill's classic Long Day's Journey Into Night, where passion, wit and beauty bubble to the surface as two Irish servant women and an American chauffeur pass that day in the kitchen of the Tyrone family's residence in 1912. "...an intense emotional experience." --Times Argus "Sublime...a stunningly offered story."--Brattleboro Reformer Long Day's Journey into Night is a play in four acts written by American playwright Eugene O'Neill, first published posthumously in 1956. The play is widely considered to be his magnum opus and one of the finest American plays of the 20th century. It premiered in Sweden in February 1956 and then opened on Broadway in November 1956, winning the Tony Award for Best Play. O'Neill posthumously received the 1957 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Long Day's Journey into Night. The work concerns the Tyrone family, consisting of parents James and Mary and their sons Edmund and Jamie. The "Long Day" refers to the setting of the play, which takes place during one day. The play is autobiographical.
