Works & Process At The Guggenheim Presents New York Theatre Workshop: HURRICANE DIANE
Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George, director Leigh Silverman, and cast members Mia Barron, Becca Blackwell, Nikiya Mathis, Danielle Skraastad, and Kate Wetherhead present highlights from George's new work Hurricane Diane, a co-production between New York Theatre Workshop and WP Theater. The production features Diane, a permaculture gardener dripping with butch charm and supernatural abilities owing to her true identity-the Greek god Dionysus. Diane returns to the modern world to restore the Earth to its natural state, taking to her suburban New Jersey cul-de-sac, and leading a bacchanalian catharsis with her neighboring suburban housewives.
