Event Title:"I think they are talking about us": Engaging The Cataract (More Information)
Event Description:

Within Lisa D’Amour’s play The Cataract, Lottie speculates to her husband Cyrus about two new houseguests, whispering, “I think they are talking about us.”

Audience members are invited to an evening of intersectional dialogue, placing theory and practice in concert with one another through the lens of The Cataract. Join us as we investigate a variety of themes and directorial approaches – from Noh theatre to Victorian’s obsession with flowers and futurism.

This engagement event is open to patrons of The Cataract, immediately following the evening’s performance.

About The Cataract
Set in Minneapolis in 1883, this poetic drama explores one week in the lives of Cyrus and Lottie Finch, a stalwart couple who take in two vagabond lovers from the South. The unlikely pairs’ intersection unearths their deep-seated desires – ones which they fight to keep buried.

Written by Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Lisa D’Amour and directed by Will Davis, The Cataract is part of the 2012-2013 Theatre and Dance Subscription Series.

Performances run October 19 – 28 in the B. Iden Payne Theatre.
