Ma-Yi Theatre Company Presents RESCUE ME by Michi Barall, 3/23-4/18

Ma-Yi presents the world premiere of Rescue Me (A Postmodern Classic With Snacks) By Michi Barall. Directed by Loy Arcenas.

In this dance-theatre adaptation of Euripides' Iphigenia in Tauris by Michi Barall, Iph is 34 and stuck in a dead-end job.  Haunted by the past, her present stituation is grim -- she's at the mercy of a temperamental goddess and a barbarian king with a fondness for human sacrifice.  And she's beginning to lose all hope of rescue.  

Rescue Me (A Postmodern Classic with Snacks) is a tragi-comedy about what to do when your Dad tries to kill you, your Mom freaks out, your brother goes crazy and you're surrounded by Barbarians.

Featuring Julian Barnett, Oni Monifa Renee Brown, David Greenspan, Leon Ingulsrud, Jodi Lin, Katherine Partington, Postell Pringle, Paco Tolson
