Tryouts by Adara Meyers
October 11th- October 27th2018
Thursday- Saturday night at 8pm
Salvage Vanguard Theater (SVT) invites you to the MainStage world premiere of Tryouts by Adara Meyers, a Boston-based experimental playwright. Directed by co-Artistic Director Diana Lynn Small, Tryouts casts a satirical gaze on women, femininity, and motherhood, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne,” and Freud’s debunked maternal psychosexual essay on the painting. Two mothers and three teenage girls maneuver the confines of a prestigious and draconian high school when in a tragicomic turn of events, the mothers throw themselves into the work of forming a pseudo-religious order focused on topiary and the girls confront head-on the primly grim version of adulthood they’ve been taught all too well.
Directed by: Diana Lynn Small
Designed by: Zac Crofford, Jessica Gilzow, Jordan Good, James Hapke, Mercedes McCleary and Diana Lynn Small.
Featuring performers: Luxy Banner, Sarah Chong, Martinique Duchene-Phillips, Clara Hayes, Hannah Kenah and Paige Tautz.
