house arrest

written and directed by iris cronin

nov. 30 - dec. 3

A lonely god
A lovely girl
A missing flyer
A funeral pyre
it happens the way all stories happen
which is
to say
it doesn’t.

House Arrest is a new work, written and directed by Iris Cronin (Brown ’19). The play is a surreal, suburban, dreamlike reimagining of the myth of Hades and Persephone. A young woman, Baby’s Breath, has been taken and hidden by Handsome Ghost, a lonely and enigmatic companion who has been visiting her since childhood. He keeps her captive in a dollhouse, held under an amnesiac spell, content and unaware of her captivity. Until, suddenly, she starts to remember.
