BWW Interview: Irish Actress LISA DWAN to Perform BECKETT TRILOGY at the Broad Stage, Santa Monica and Later in NYC!BWW Interview: Irish Actress LISA DWAN to Perform BECKETT TRILOGY at the Broad Stage, Santa Monica and Later in NYC!
by Don Grigware - Mar 31, 2016

Irish actress Lisa Dwan, the premier interpreter of Samuel Beckett, is about to step down from the position this spring, but before she does, she will make  an appearance with the Beckett Trilogy at the The Broad Stage in Santa Monica in April. Why is this the first time that all 3 plays have been performed together? Well I guess one reason is that Not I is rarely performed and Footfalls has never been performed by one actress playing both roles of Mother (off stage) and May (on stage), and to my knowledge no other actress has tried to perform all three roles in one evening. Up until I tried it, I didn't even think it was possible.  (more...)

EXILE IS MY HOME Opens 4/28 at Theater For The New CityEXILE IS MY HOME Opens 4/28 at Theater For The New City
by BWW News Desk - Mar 22, 2016

Theater For The New City is proud to present the world premiere of Exile Is My Home, a provocative new play by internationally renowned author Domnica Radulescu.  Told as a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fairy tale, Exile Is My Home is the haunting story of Mina and Lina, a refugee couple from the Balkans traveling through the galaxy in search of a planet to call home.  The play combines absurdist comedy, irony and suspense to raise consciousness about the current international refugee crisis and the complexity of issues related to it.  The story emerged partly from Radulescu's own experience as a political refugee from the former communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu and other accounts of displacement.  As millions of people are uprooted from their homes and swept across tumultuous seas and often unwelcome lands, Exile Is My Home highlights the importance of immigrant theater in bringing awareness about many of the challenges facing our world today.   (more...)
