Lifeline Theatre continues its 27th anniversary MainStage season with the world premiere adaptation of Rachel Ingalls’ 1983 magical realism book Mrs. Caliban, adapted by Lifeline ensemble member Frances Limoncelli, directed by Ann Boyd.
Dorothy is locked in a lifeless marriage of empty domestic ritual until a fugitive reptile-man from another world arrives on her doorstep. With him, she finds forbidden love and experiences a rebirth of her spirit, as she learns to question her assumptions about the world. Join Dorothy on a whimsical and heartbreaking journey as she dares to live – and love – unconventionally, in this remarkable drama, acclaimed as one of the greatest post-war American novels by the British Book Marketing Council. The show runs approximately two hours with one intermission, and copies of the book will be on sale in the lobby.
Lifeline has produced six previous world premiere stage adaptations by Limoncelli, including four installments of the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries by Dorothy L. Sayers, notably Strong Poison in 2004 and Gaudy Night in 2006, both of which garnered Non-Equity Jeff Awards for New Adaptation, and last season’s hit production of Busman’s Honeymoon.
