A farcical tragedy: Adapted and Directed by
Jessica Lanius

In this farcically tragic adaptation of Chekhov’s “Untitled Play,” Theatre LILA’s FIRECRACKER transports us to small town America somewhere between here and the Mississippi ubiquitously suffering the plight of chronic inescapability. Visually stimulating and emotionally hysterical, this comical tour de force sends us into the mediocre life of a man turned on its head by Midsummer Eve and the appearance of a former love. Risking spinning the rest of his world into unrestrained chaos, will he dare to chase living the life he could?

Conceived and Directed by Andy Arden Reese

An original piece inspired by texts of Walt Whitman, Samuel Beckett and Lewis Carroll. As an ensemble choreographic dreamscape, WONDER:lust rises. A night of terrifying bleakness. A woman on the verge. Existential meltdown. Dream intersects with nightmare. Rules fly in the face of logic. And there is a fine line between what is brutal and kind. When everything you know to be true falls apart around you, there is WONDER:lust. 

Actors: Emily Mitchell, Jessica Pohly, John Mulcahy, Kate Russell, Shadae Smith, Stanley Brode, Susan Schuld, Vanessa Morosco*
