Directed by Alice Jankell, the world-premiere comedy will continue through Nov. 3. Looking Glass Theatre produces.
The cast features Tricia Alexandro, Richard Busser, Michael Kingsbaker, Claudia Mason and Sarah Nedwek.
In The Goddess, press notes state, a "contemporary New York couple pushes the boundaries of their marriage by agreeing to openly pursue multiple partners. Will their respect for each other’s freedoms promote greater intimacy? Or will their exploration open up a Pandora’s box of unanticipated challenges? Into this world a woman of mysterious origin inserts herself to prescribe a therapy suited for modern times."
Director Jankell added, “Throughout time we’ve asked ourselves about the battle between human order — civilization — and nature. Greek mythology tells us it is a battle that may never be won. Freudian analysis tells us that controlling our instincts causes anxiety, which in turn can lead to neurosis. Right now, we see the battle’s collateral damage in the crisis of our ecology, and climate change. Suddenly we are asking ourselves with a new urgency, who is winning, man or nature?”
Performances are Thursday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
Write Act Rep Theatre is located at 309 East 26th Street. Tickets, which are $18, can be purchased by calling (866) 811-4111 or by visiting lookingglasstheatrenyc.com.
