Aurora Theatre Company Presents Next Phase Of Beth Wilmurt's OLGA- A FAREWELL CONCERT

Aurora Theatre Company Presents Next Phase Of Beth Wilmurt's OLGA- A FAREWELL CONCERTAurora Theatre Company presents the special limited engagement of the second outing of OLGA - A Farewell Concert, a work-in-continual-progress created by Beth Wilmurt (The Letters, The Eccentricities of a Nightingale, Jack Goes Boating, Bosoms and Neglect, and Salome) and Her Band. Aurora commissioned the piece in 2017 as part of the company's Originate + Generate (O+G) new works initiative to promote the creation of forward-looking theater. OLGA - A Farewell Concert plays a limited run in the company's Second Stage and cabaret performance space, Harry's UpStage, just in time for the holidays.

You are once again cordially invited to the home of Olga Sergeyevna Prozorova for an evening of surprise hellos, stirring songs and sad farewells. In this second outing of the critically acclaimed work-in-progress, Wilmurt and her band of soldiers embark on a journey through the inner life of Olga, the eldest sister in Anton Chekhov's play, Three Sisters-a character Wilmurt has been exploring for over a decade. For one certain-to-be-memorable week this December, Aurora again hosts Wilmurt and her band for a rousing evening of theatrical songs inspired by Chekhov's Russians, viewed through a contemporary American lens. Snowy Siberia meets the American songbook in this second edition of Wilmurt's poignant and imaginative O+G commission.

Wednesday at 7 pm. Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8 pm. Sunday at 2 pm. Harry's UpStage, Aurora Theatre Company, 2081 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA. For single tickets ($30; $27 for subscribers).VIP Reserved Seating ($38; $35 for subscribers). Please call (510) 843-4822 or visit auroratheatre.org.
