What We Wanted

Set in a small college town in Ohio, What We Wanted is a new play about a three-person marriage struggling to stay intact as forces inside and out tear it apart. Julian is a professor, whose sexual relationship with his mentee causes strife as she files a suit for misconduct. Agnes receives a promotion to become editor of the magazine she works for but must move away from her family in order to accept. Sally helps her daughter's boyfriend, Dale, study for the GED, but crosses boundaries with the frail young man and Reggie exacts revenge on her mother for abandoning her to live with Agnes and Julian.

The story begins on October 16th, 1817 with a single line in a brewer's log. The handwritten note reveals the first eight barrels of Guinness beer a porter to be exact meant for America would make their arrival in South Carolina. Ever since then, the bond between America and Ireland has continued to grow, from Irish immigrants searching for a better life to community leaders to, of course, Guinness and the countless pints shared responsibly with the people of the United States.

The saying, 'Good things come to those who wait,' could certainly be applied to the world premiere of The Good Swimmer playing at BAM's Fishman Space as part of the Next Wave festival from November 28th-December 1st. Defined as a pop requiem for the youth of the Vietnam War, this collaboration between Heidi Rodewald (music) and Donna Di Novelli (lyrics) directed by Kevin Newbury has been the better part of a decade in the making since the two women began working on the piece at a Eugene O'Neill Theater Center residency and left with three songs based on text from out-of-print lifesaving manuals that would become the foundation of The Good Swimmer -- the title song, 'Red Cross' and 'Double Drowning'.

But in filling out the program, he turned to something very different--a work, in fact, that hadn't been written yet, reflecting his life as a black man in America: “Cycles of My Being” by composer Tyshawn Sorey and poet/lyricist Terrance Hayes.
