Actor, writer and educator, Anu Yadav ('Capers) shifts between multiple characters in her latest solo piece, Meena's Dream. Set to a live, original score combining South Indian classical music with jazz and indie folk, the play tells the story of Meena, a nine-year-old Indian-American girl who wishes her mother, Aisha, could get the medicine she needs. Her plight is complicated when, at night, the Hindu God Lord Krishna himself appears, entreating her help in his war against the worry machine. Patrick Crowley (In Pursuit of Me) directs this world premiere at Silver Spring's Round House Theatre. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “A ripped-from-the-headlines drama” --Minneapolis Star Tribune
redshirts explores a sports scandal involving college football players at a Division I university and investigates the multifaceted social behavior of student athletes. Eighteen-year-old Dante Green is an all-star running back at Tennessee Southern, but is less than stellar in the classroom. His academic integrity is called into question when an English professor accuses Dante of plagiarism. Suddenly caught between pride and insecurity, Dante, along with his coach and teammates, are at a moral crossroads. The line between right and wrong is blurred as these characters tackle the conflict between commercial success and academic integrity.
This production marks the world premiere.
