GRASSES OF A THOUSAND COLORS
Written by Wallace Shawn
Directed by André Gregory
Featuring Julie Hagerty, Emily Cass McDonnell, Kristina Mueller, Wallace Shawn, and Jennifer Tilly
October 7 - December 1 EXTENDED!
Shawn’s most outlandish work to date, GRASSES OF A THOUSAND COLORS, is a disturbing and anomalously beautiful play that explores the role of human beings in nature and the role of nature in human beings, sexuality being as Shawn says, “nature’s most obvious footprint in the human soul.” The play’s central character is a doctor who believes he has solved world hunger when he figures out how to rejigger the metabolisms of animals to tolerate eating their own kind. This has unexpected consequences. The play tells a story about the doctor, his wife, and his lovers, that is also a story about human beings and animals and the planet we live on.
Please note: The role usually played by Jennifer Tilly will be played by Emily Cass McDonnell for performances on October 9, 15, 23, 30, November 5, 14, 23 matinee and 27.
GRASSES OF A THOUSAND COLORS is part of THE WALLACE SHAWN-ANDRÉ GREGORY PROJECT, a co-production with Theatre for a New Audience and retrospective in celebration of the remarkable 40-year theatrical collaboration between Wallace Shawn and André Gregory. For more information, click here.
