Love until you can’t: Lessons on how to love an artist.
Eight deeply flawed characters struggle to achieve a state of grace while caught up in a menacing cycle. Obsessive love challenges morality in theHegira’s world premiere of Jacqueline E. Lawton’s Deep Belly Beautiful directed by Danielle A. Drakes at the Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint.
Painter Luke has been creatively blocked ever since leaving his sculptress wife Anna Lee for art dealer Elyse. On the eve of their sixth wedding anniversary, Anna Lee decides to resurrect her relationship with Luke. The production plays out like a fairy tale, though one decidedly more Brothers’ Grimm than Walt Disney. An unflinching examination of what it is to love an artist, the fiercely iconoclastic protagonist, Anna Lee, propels us into a world sinister, yet alluring, where revenge, addiction and cannibalism are explored.
Drakes says Lawton has conjured a vision, “…where there are no rules, no moral codes. Familial ties and years of devotion do not exempt you from acts of betrayal and violence. Each character is so deeply entrenched in her heartbreak and disappointment; she is blind to the consequences of her actions. No one is spared.”
