And just like that, this semester’s student work is up and going!
First up is Tabula Rasa x UCYA’s first production of the semester- “Miss Julie,” written by August Strindberg and directed by Chloe Jewell. Jewell’s adaption of this literary classic focuses on the interactions and relationships of Miss Julie (Fiona Ross) and Jean (Josh Ramsdell) as Jean serves as a member of Miss Julie’s political campaign for presidency. The story starts following Miss Julie’s loss at the election and follows with the hard aftermath and comparative themes of gender inequality in the past verses present. How has the power struggle between man and woman changed, or has it even changed? “Miss Julie” runs March 6th and 7th at the S.L.T. Education Center.
Also having recently started rehearsals is this semester’s Studio Series production of “Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind,” written by Greg Allen and directed by David Struckman. This unique performance is sure to keep audiences on their feet as its ‘plot’ is to actually perform a total of 30 plays within its 60-minute run-time. With the order of the plays varying in each performance and the huge amount of audience participation it requires, audiences could come both nights and see two completely different and outstanding performances. “Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind” will be up and running March 9th and 10th.
