09.09.18"Biting Back"
(musical play)
Emmanuelle ZagoriaWhat happens after the "happily ever after"? What does the "after" hold? Is there too great a sacrifice to be "happily" with another? Does someone's love have the ability to make you happy for "ever"? In looking at the parallels between a daughter's new relationship and that of her dysfunctionally divorced parents, this story looks at how we can never escape our past, and that the happy endings we strive for aren't always the ones that suit us best Margaux Billard

The Masterpiece"

In the space of one day and night they fight for both forgiveness and revenge. While Death hovers invisibly in the artist's studio, the two reminisce, paint, and orate, joust for supremacy, drink, play cards, laugh, philosophize about fame, art, and love... and confront their most secret fears and longings.
