Post-Show Rap (Q&A) for all ticket-holders after the Sunday finale. Link to join will be in the digital playbill.
Directed by MFA Directing Candidate Thea Wigglesworth
Translated and Adapted from Ondine by Jean Giradoux
“What does it mean to be human?” is the question posed to the audience with Ondine, a classic French play by Jean Giraudoux, newly translated and adapted by MFA candidate Thea Wigglesworth. It brings triumph and sacrifice to the stage while allowing the audience to be swept up by the drama that unfolds when the desires of human and nature collide. Puppets designed by Isabella Dixon embody the characters, manipulated by the actors, who can also be watched from a “behind the screen” camera. An intersection of humor and heartbreak, this inventive retelling of a classic German fairytale invites patrons to reflect on the parables of the past as presented through a 21st century humanist gaze. ADVISORIES: strong language and in Act III, puppet nudity and the power dynamic may be triggering for violence and sexual assault survivors.
Production presented online.
