Ragged Wing Ensemble presents an evening of four short world-premiere plays by Anthony Clarvoe, Cecilia Palmtag, Addie Ulrey, and Windy Wynazz that explore the subtly shifting boundaries of home, from the comic to the sublime, the deeply personal to the global, and points between.
In Anthony Clarvoe's Rock Springs, an old woman has lived alone in the same house for fifty years. But this house can’t be hers. She’s still a schoolgirl. And she’s not alone. But everyone here died in Rock Springs. They want something but they won’t say what. She ran away from home. Now home is trying to take her back.
On a journey you have two options: to go forward or to turn back. If you are two pioneers on the road to California, a home awaits at either end of the journey. The home you left behind, and the dream of home ahead. When is it right to keep going? When is better to turn back? Is turning back the same as quitting or can it be a victory? In Addie Jean Ulrey's Making It, each step is a decision.
Patients, playthings and cars. It’s a hot mess and Lilah loves it, but it’s making Diana sick. As Diana works to contain the rigid edges of reality the pressure inside is mounting. Here, nothing can escape, and only the unbreakable will find a way out. Mother's Fever Dream is a solo performance written and performed by Cecilia Palmtag.
In Windy Wynazz, Sabrina Wenske, and Michele Owen's Fantasy Home Sweepstakes: Malibu a gaggle of motley clowns win the big time. A fantasy home in Malibu. What could possibly go wrong?
