ENDEAVOR MIND Written by Kim Z. Dale Directed by Jen Poulin October 5th - 27th, The Den Theatre
Claudine is a brilliant academic who sometimes wonders if she has settled for family and a boring job instead of pursuing her full potential. So when a new brain-enhancing technology is developed, she jumps at the chance to be part of the program and pursue the dreams she had set aside. But this experiment may have unintended consequences, for Claudine and for those around her. Inspired by Faust, The Twilight Zone, and Black Mirror, Endeavor Mind is where corporate science, human biology, and intellectual aspiration converge.
MÜNSTERSPIEL Written by Gregory Peters Directed by Jack Dugan Carpenter February 14th - March 16th, Berger Park Coach House
From the untethered mind of artistic director Gregory Peters comes Münsterspiel: a true-ish tragicomedy about the Anabaptist takeover of the city of Münster in 1534. Pushing the Protestant Reformation to full-on revolution, their communist theocracy held out against a year-and-a-half long siege. Inspired in part by Greil Marcus’s Lipstick Traces, Munsterspiel is a dadaist romp through the Reformation Alamo, a time travel odyssey through what-could-have-been and what-could-come, and a prayer for the end of the world.
