Can it be that I haven’t posted a Throwback Thursday since March? Well, let’s get that train a-runnin’ again with this week’s throwback, which is still a fairly recent throwback to August 2014 and one of our first read-throughs for From Women’s Eyes. It’s pretty amazing to think how far we have come in two months. This has been a fun and challenging project to work on, and it opens TONIGHT! It only plays for three days (four performances) so if you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, what are you waiting for?
From Women’s Eyes
Presented by Empty Space Productions
From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world.
-William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost
During the wake after the passing of a dear friend, a group of women start to pack up her attic where they find memories of the lives they’ve shared. As they sift through the books, photos and debris, they relive,commemorate, grieve and above all, play.
Built from over twenty canonical pieces, From Women’s Eyes celebrates and explores the relationships women have with each other and the world around them through some of the best of Shakespeare’s female characters.
