FALLING: New Visions Directors' Festival


New Visions Directors' Festival

by Sam Shepard
directed by Karina Fox '17

Nov. 30 - Dec. 4, 2016
Studio Theatre

An evening of surreal experimental theatre, written by two iconic playwrights, and staged by two of Muhlenberg’s talented young directors.

Salome tells the horrifying tale of Salome, niece of the Roman ruler Herod Antipas. To please her uncle on his birthday, Salome dances the infamous Dance of the Seven Veils. When Herod drunkenly offers her any reward she chooses, she responds with a gruesome demand.

In Icarus’s Mother, a lazy picnic devolves into a surreal nightmare. While a group of young picnickers waits for the fireworks, two of the group start acting bizarrely — sending smoke signals from the barbecue, playing cruel mind games, and play-acting disasters. As the group dynamic spins into chaos, the disastrous fantasies somehow become a fiery reality.

For mature audiences.
