by Maggie Yates - Jun 10, 2017

There's a lot to unpack from director and professor Simon Williams' production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle, the Brecht epic that expands a parable into a detailed exploration of how well human kindness fares in a lawless land of political upheaval within a universe marked by an stylistically absurd mercilessness.

by Maggie Yates - Apr 22, 2016

Based on the title, one might assume that Joshua Harmon's 'Bad Jews' is a play more specifically rooted in Judaism that it actually is. While Harmon's play does revolve around several characters vying for a relic from their recently deceased grandfather, the play is actually not about what makes someone a 'Bad' Jew, but more broadly, what makes someone a bad person.

In Ensemble's presentation of Doug Wright's 'I Am My Own Wife,' actor John Tufts does an impressive job of personifying the history of cultural and political crisis and evolution in Germany and East Berlin by telling the story of eccentric transvestite Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, who lived publicly as a woman despite the homophobic European regimes that controlled Germany at the time.
