Directed by Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses), The White Snake brings to magical life the tale of a gentle serpent from the spirit world who's lived atop a mountain for centuries. One day, after transforming into a beautiful young woman, this spirit travels into the human world -- finding unexpected love, happiness and family. Wishing to remain a human forever, her plans are thwarted by a vindictive monk who has discovered her true identity. A story that is at once funny and moving, this stunningly staged production is a modern, magical adaptation of a classic Chinese fable filled with dazzling costumes, beautiful music and timeless appeal.

Quotes & Highlights
The running time for The Trinity River Plays is approximately three hours and 10 minutes, including two 15-minute intermissions.
In Jar Fly_, a teenaged Iris Spears teeters on the brink of maturity when an event shatters her innocence — and changes her life forever. In Rain_, a 34-year-old Iris flees a collapsing marriage to return home to Texas and the comfort of her mother’s embrace, only to find that the once-solid ground has shifted beneath her feet. And in Ghoststory, a surprise visit from her estranged husband forces Iris to confront the past and the ghosts that have continued to haunt her. The trilogy is inspired by the rhythm of the cicada — a part of Iris’ young life in the south — the insect that emerges every 17 years to take wing.
