The 2015 Wedge series:
The Trojan women
The world premiere of a new adaptation by Alexandra Silber
Directed by Austin Regan
As ten years of war come to a close, the victorious Greeks divide up the ultimate spoils--the remaining women of Troy. But it doesn't feel like a triumph. Ten years steeped in death far from home has shattered the lives of victors and victims alike.
Written by Maria Irene Fornes
Directed by Aneesha Kudtarkar
Mae and Lloyd live together. Mae presses clothes. Lloyd is sick. Henry comes into their home. Henry can read and say grace, and through him Mae begins to yearn for her own kind of grace and an escape from the mud.
The Infernal Machine
Written by Jean Cocteau
Directed by Paul Bedard
He shall slay his father. He shall marry his mother. Watch now, spectator. Before you is a fully wound machine. It is one of the most perfect machines devised by the infernal gods for the mathematical annihilation of a mortal.
Written by Stanislaw Witkiewicz Translated by Daniel C. Gerould & C. S. Durer
Directed by Dan Rogers
Two super villains hijack a locomotive and crank the throttle. As they hurtle towards certain death, they find themselves on the edge of clarity and insanity. How do we find stillness in a world filled with noise? How do we slow down when we're encouraged at every turn to live faster? All aboard.
