FACING ANGELA opens this weekend

UPDATE: FACING ANGELA is open and runs through July 28! The production has been Jeff Recommended.



She’s here.  FACING ANGELA opens this weekend (preview Friday 6/28, opening Saturday 6/29).  You can get your tickets here!

If you’re a fan of my play KILL ME, FACING ANGELA is written in a similar abstract, lyrical style.  Rapid shifts, layered narratives, body horror.  Intense make-up and masks.  Impeccable ensemble work.  It’s all here, friends.  We’re teching the show as I write this, and we’re so excited to share what we’ve been working on since last summer.

Angela has lost her face.  Acquiring a new face alters more than skin and tissue, cutting into Angela’s relationship with her husband, Wes, and mutating her sense of self.  As Angela re-constructs, re-invents, and re-defines her identity, Wes ceases to recognize the woman he loves, and doubts whether he really knows himself either.  This re-imagining of my 2003 play (my first ever professionally produced), challenges how we recognize ourselves and those we go to bed with, and the collateral damage of transformative change.
