By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Carin Bratlie
June 7-22,2013
Performed at St. Catherine University, Mendel Hall, Lecture Hall 106

Love will be her greatest experiment.

She is a noblewoman, Voltaire’s lover, and a scientist whose research bridges the gap between Newton and Einstein. Emilie, Marquise of Châtelet, lives before and beyond her time, skirting the rules of polite society and allowing her only confines to be that of her own brilliant mind. But it is the fragile human heart which adheres to no approved rules. The Marquise examines her position on love, finds it worthy of experimentation, and accepts it as a theory her lifespan may not allow her to prove.

Lovers & Executioners

By John Strand, based on the work of Antoine Jacob de Montfleury
Directed by Carin Bratlie
September 29 – October 14, 2012
Performing at The Gremlin Theatre

‘Til death do us part.

Betrayed by the man she loved most and then left on a desert island condemned to die, Julie returns not as a ghost but in guise of a man to exact humiliation and vengeance on her husband. In the vein of the most elegant Restoration comedies, her return to society is hailed by a web of would-be lovers, long-kept secrets, swordplay, foolish courting, and humble submission. With a new adaptation by John Strand this otherwise traditional farce holds a retinue of modern emotion and a starkly surprising finale. Hell hath no fury like a woman in drag… with a sword.

White House. Oval Office. Sequined jacket.

A chronological, biographical survey of each of the 44 men who have held one of the most revered and regrettable positions of power on earth. Their miracles and misfires are celebrated by a fistful of actors while moving through comedic and tragic moments, revelations, reconstructions, and mini-musicals. Where has the presidency gone since its fall from paradise? Where will it continue on to? And how much responsibility do we-the people-hold? Originally created by the Neo-Futurists in Chicago, 44 Plays for 44 Presidents is a love song to every Mad Tom, Tricky Dick, and William Henry Harri-who. [click for more information…]

I ain’t sure, but this might just be a parole violation.

Until their attempt at knocking over a liquor store for easy money is thwarted… and then that luck goes south, those choices are always the wrong ones, and their lives become dependent on their unlikely partnership.
