Dedicated to producing theatre created by women, Theatre Unbound launches its season July 31 with George's Most Massive Woman Wins, which runs through Aug. 9 as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Miriam Monasch directs the four-woman work, which "explores the often uneasy relationship between a woman and her body."
Alice Gerstenberg's 1916 play Overtones and Queen Margaret of Navarre's 1540 work The Coach will be showcased as part of Aphra's Attic: Plays by Early Women Playwrights, running Sept. 19-Oct. 4. Also on the bill is Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Story, from playwright Lauren Wilson, running Oct. 31-Nov. 15.
Following will be Loomer's Expecting Isabel, which runs Feb. 13-28, 2010. The work is described as "a poignant comedy about one couple's journey through the maze of fertility options." Theatre Unbound will later collaborate with Green T Productions to stage Medea: A Noh Cycle, by Carol Sorgenfrei and directed by Kathy Welch, April 20-25, 2010.
Additional programming includes the short play festival 24 Hour Play Project on March 6, 2010; and 6 for $6, a works-in-progress play showcase, running during dark nights of Chemical Imbalance and Expecting Isabel.
