One of America's greatest playwrights, Maria Irene Fornes was born in Havana, moved to the US in her teens, and rose to prominence in the 1960s Off-Off Broadway scene with her wildly innovative, endlessly playful approach to language and form. Though she gradually stopped writing due to dementia, a chance encounter with filmmaker Michelle Memran reignited her spontaneous creative spirit and triggered a decade-long collaboration that picked up where the pen left off. The duo travel from NY to Havana, Miami to Seattle, exploring Fornes's remembered past and their shared present. Theater luminaries such as Edward Albee, Ellen Stewart, Paula Vogel, Lanford Wilson, and others weigh in on Fornes's important contributions.
