PAST PERFORMANCES IN THE SPOTLIGHT—
HOME, presented as a radio drama for female narrator and chamber ensemble, is a theatrical update of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s feminist essay "The Home: Its Work and Influence". Inspired by the world around us, HOME explores the psychology of a woman trapped within her house while a virus runs rampant outside.
She is faced with a lineage of ladies who have been longing to leave their homes, and have an identity of their own. Originally penned in 1903, we parallel the turn of the century Tuberculosis scare to our stay at home at home COVID order during an administration trying to keep women silenced, subservient and back in the home.
