Hello Season Seven!

A Note from Our Artistic Director:

I’m very pleased to continue Savage Rose’s mission of bringing great classical theatre to our community. Our company has been going through a major transition in the last few months, and it has been encouraging to be asked about what’s happening with the company and what we’ll be doing next. I couldn’t be happier to proclaim that we’re still going strong and we have an exciting season lined up for 2015-2016 along the theme of “Revenge and Redemption.”

Eurpides’ monumental tragedy Medea and the anonymous morality play Everyman are powerful, timeless pieces and surprisingly excellent foils for each other. Our play reading series Words Words Words returns on a bi-monthly basis, giving audiences a chance to hear a wide range of dramatic works, many not often produced.

My very deepest thanks for your support for Savage Rose as we look into the future and strive to always bring you dynamic classical theatre and to share with you our enthusiasm for the power of language.

Sincerely,

Kelly Moore, Artistic Director

OUR UPCOMING SEASON!

Fall 2015 – Medea, by Euripides

Jason, the fabled Greek hero who sought the Golden Fleece, has for many years been married to Medea, a foreign princess and sorceress. Medea assisted Jason during his quest and even saved his life on many occasions, though by questionable means. They have two children together, but Jason has recently abandoned Medea to marry the beautiful young daughter of King Creon of Corinth. Medea’s heartbreak and rage at her husband’s betrayal lead her down a dark, violent path to a shocking final act of vengeance. Euripides’ classic tragedy, first performed in 431 BCE, fully embodies the idea that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

Spring 2016 – Everyman, by Anonymous

Everyman is summoned by Death to give an account of himself before God, who feels that man has become consumed with pursuing pleasure and riches and has forgotten to tend to his soul. Everyman, fearful of facing his reckoning alone, seeks companionship for his journey, yet none of his kin will accompany him, nor will Fellowship or his worldly Goods. In the end, Good Deeds are all that go with Everyman to his final destination. One of the most famous morality plays, first presented in the late 15th century, Everyman is a beautiful allegory about accepting mortality and recognizing the value of what we do with the life we have.
