FEFU & HER FRIENDS

Streaming December 2 - 5, 2021

by María Irene Fornés

Directed by: J'aime Morrison

Hailed as game-changing, provocative, and genius, Fefu and Her Friends is one of the most influential—and invisible—plays of the 20th century. An innovative immersive theater piece, Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés’s rapturous comedy-drama allows the audience to be a fly on the wall in this unconventional tale of eight women gathering at a New England country home in 1935. Fefu has gathered seven of her friends to her home to rehearse a presentation for their charity toward school education. Each character plays a role in this event. Before and after their rehearsal, the women interact with one another and share their thoughts and feelings about life along with their personal struggles and societal concerns. The production focuses on the relationships between these very different women and explores how they view themselves in relation to how others view them. The dance of the female gaze, the dynamic of gender, and the violence of some forms of play are central to our production's investigations.

Streaming December 9 - 12, 2021

Directed by: Christine Menzies

MARIAN, MARIAN, MARIAN: MYSTERIES OF THE BLACK MADONNA is not a film, not a play but a virtual collage of thoughts, conversations, and conceptual creations incorporating movement, words, original music, and visual artistry developed from sleuthing and imagining the global phenomenon of THE BLACK MADONNA.  The CSUN student ensemble made up of theatre students used rudimentary technology to create and color the building blocks configured in the MMM presentation.
