ARMETTA–You Are Not My Enemy: This play is freely adapted from the traditional Japanese Noh Drama Atsumori by Zeami. Here, past meets present, the material world meets the world of the spirits, and old enemies are finally brought face-to-face on a lonely beach in a timeless moment of forgiveness and reconciliation. This reading especially emphasizes sound, both voices and live music, in celebrating a contemporary American response to the centuries-old spirit of Noh.

 

FEDER—Bathtub Gin: Who is crazy? Who is wise? And what is Em supposed to think about the old woman who has invaded her very intimate space? A little friendly conversation, a bit too much advice and a trip to the library might be just what Em needs to land on her feet.
