The relationship between a mother and daughter about to evicted from their trailer park home is the crux of Lisa D'Amour's new modern-day fable, Anna Bella Eema, which runs at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, Sept. 27-Oct. 13.
Presented by Page Seventy-Three Productions, a theatew company founded by four Yale grads, the play officially opens Sept. 30.
In Minneapolis-based D'Amour's play, daughter Anna Bella conjures up a magical "mud girl" named Anna Bella Eema to brighten her life. But this creatures only pushes her already-anxious mother, Irene, closer to the brink. The title character leads the two women through a world inhabited by Frankenstein, vampires and police chases.
Katie Pearl directs the production, which has an original score by Chris Sidorfsky.
The theatre is at 107 Suffolk St., NYC. Tickets are $20. For information, call (212) 851 8997. — By Diane Snyder
