Gadfly Theatre Productions to Present PRECIOUS LITTLE, 3/21-30
Madeleine George's magical and deeply moving play about communication, commitment, and connection is coming to the People's Center in March. The former 13P playwright's contemporary tale starring Brodie, a gifted linguist and single-mom-to-be-by-choice contemplates tough questions when Brodie finds that the baby she's carrying will never be able to communicate via language. Failing to receive comfort from her young girlfriend, she finds connection in unlikely new friends--namely an ape at her local zoo, and Cleva--the last known speaker of a dying language. Precious Little will be produced at the People's Center Theatre on the West Bank of Minneapolis, and runs March 21st-30th.
As a queer and feminist theatre organization, the lesbian identity of both the playwright and the protagonist were a factor in choosing this piece, but what director Immanuel Elliott was really drawn to was the play's theme of finding ways to communicate when words aren't enough or won't suffice. This play will grab the attention and hearts of many regardless of gender or sexual identity due to the organization's dedication to "uniquely universal" work. Gadfly is proud to welcome Sondra Glynn back to Gadfly in the lead role, as well as first time Gadflies Alana LaBissoniere and Joann Oudekerk, who play multiple characters each.
Gadfly Theatre Productions hosts a FREE salon for the public for each of it's productions. This one will be held at Boneshaker Books on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00 P.M. This event is free, and features complimentary food and beverage from local vendors, guest speakers who are experts on the topics presented in the play, and face time with the Gadfly artists and company members themselves.
