Red Bull's Strindberg Soundscapes Will Feature Jennifer Ehle and David Strathairn
26 Mar 2013
Jennifer Ehle and David Strathairn will take part in the Red Bull Theater presentation of Strindberg Soundscapes April 15 at St. Stephen's Church. Music by Anthony Plog will be featured.
The 8 PM event will include readings of August Strindberg's The Stronger and Pariah, both of which have been adapted by Craig Baldwin, who will also direct. The presentation promises poems by Walt Whitman set to music by Plog, as well as a musical performance of "Facades" by William Walton.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
