The 2019/2020 season is here!
In addition to our WVL Radio plays, ITP will present Well, by Lisa Kron, as part of the MainStage Season at North Carolina Stage Company, where Immediate Theatre Project is the Partner Company in Residence.
Lisa wants to tell you a story about her and her mother. But it's not really ABOUT her mother. Or herself. Not REALLY. She says. And she insists that it's not a play, actually; it's a "theatrical exploration."
Lisa’s mother, Ann, does indeed have a story to tell; she is a Midwestern housewife who suffers from mysterious and debilitating allergies, but who still managed to create and/or preserve an integrated neighborhood in which to raise her kids. But as Lisa sets out to turn her life into a play, she discovers that she might not understand her mother or herself as quite well as she imagined.
This smart, funny, and imaginative play delves into the complexities of race relations, illness, memory, and the pitfalls of telling someone else's story.
Playing at NC Stage March 18 - April 12, 2020. Link to tickets above.
