Citizen: An American Lyric

Apr 28 – May 7, 2017

Fountain Theatre’s Citizen: An American Lyric, a meditation on race that fuses poetry, prose, movement, music and the video image, is a provocative stage adaptation of Claudia Rankine’s internationally acclaimed book of poetry about everyday acts of racism in America adapted by playwright and Fountain Theatre Co-Artistic Director Stephen Sachs and directed by Shirley Jo Finney. Of Rankine’s Citizen, The New Yorker wrote that it was brilliant… [and] explores the kinds of injustice that thrive when the illusion of justice is perfected. The New York Times wrote that Rankine brilliantly pushes poetry’s forms to disarm readers and circumvent our carefully constructed defense mechanisms against the hint of possibly being racist ourselves.

Dry Land

May 12–21, 2017

Written by Ruby Rae Spiegel and directed by Alana Dietze, Echo Theater Company’s Dry Land is a haunting play about female friendship and an abortion that takes place in the locker room of a central Florida high school. Written when Spiegel was just 21 years old and still an undergraduate at Yale, the play is a deeply truthful portrait of the fears, hopes and bonds of teenage girls—as gut-wrenching as it is funny. In his New York Times "critic’s pick" review, Ben Brantley called Dry Land tender, caustic, funny and harrowing, often all at the same time.
