the word progress on my mother’s lips doesn’t ring true

By Trap Door Theatre (other events)

27 Dates Through Jan 28, 2012
Guest Hungarian/Romanian director István K. Szabó captures the signature comic/tragic surrealism of Matei Visniec’s The Word Progress on My Mother’s Lips Doesn’t Ring True. Winner of the “Best Play in the Off-section” at the Avignon Festival in 2009″ this American Premiere delves into the pits of refugee psyche, a metaphysical space where one continuously runs from a place with nothing left, to a place with nothing to offer. This collaboration is made possible with the generous support of the Cultural Services of the French Consulate in Chicago and a grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding in New York.
