Two plays that explore making meaning from the stories we inherit and the ones we outgrow.
The Collision follows sisters Anise, Gudrun, and Gunch who spend their days praying, washing clothes, and copying the Bible. When a mysterious object falls from the sky–bringing death, destruction, and...unsettling changes in one of the sisters–they are forced to question: was this God’s work? Or the Devil’s? And what happens when you can't tell the difference?
The Martyrdom is an adaption of 10th century canoness Hrotsvitha's comedy about three Christian virgins who triumph over the Devil by accepting their violent, corporeal deaths as a shortcut to eternal happiness with their Celestial Bridegroom? The raucous adventure is a road trip through the last millennium with the people (and puppets) who have asked themselves this same question – in hopes that someone else might have the answer.
