Geva's 45th Season Continues With The World Premiere Of ONE HOUSE OVER

Geva's 45th Season Continues With The World Premiere Of ONE HOUSE OVERGeva Theatre Center's 2017-2018 Season continues with the world premiere of One House Over, by Catherine Trieschmann and directed by Mark Clements, in the Elaine P. Wilson Stage from April 3 through April 29.

When Rafael and Camila Hernandez move in downstairs to help Joanne with her elderly and cantankerous curmudgeon of a father, Joanne breathes a little easier. She needs their help, and they need jobs. But she can't anticipate the complications that arise when "the help" starts to feel like family...and act like it. A brilliant new comedy about boundaries, power, privilege and anxiety in a single backyard.

One of today's hottest playwrights, Catherine Trieschmann's plays include The Bridegroom of Blowing Rock, Crooked, How the World Began (Milwaukee Rep 2012/13), Hot Georgia Sunday and The Most Deserving. Her work has been produced Off-Broadway at the Women's Project, Bush Theatre (London), Out of Joint at the Arcola Theatre (London), South Coast Repertory, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, New Theatre (Sydney), Florida Stage, Summer Play Festival, Actors Theatre of Louisville, American Theater Company and Edinburgh Fringe Festival, among others. She has received commissions from South Coast Repertory, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Denver Theatre Center for the Performing Arts. She is the recipient of the Weissberger Award, the Otis Guernsey New Voices Playwriting Award from the Inge Theater Festival and the Edgerton New Play Award. She also wrote the screenplay for the film, Angel's Crest, which premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and was released by Magnolia Pictures. Originally from Athens, Georgia, she now lives in a small town in western Kansas.
