The Garden


video

The Brick Playhouse
Philadelphia, PA
June 4-6, 2000
Directed by Joe Shahadi

This piece combined an Elizabethan folk song about a king who has to "cut his wife open" as she dies in childbirth to save their baby, with stories of my teenage brother's and my mother-in-law's death, and descriptions of my garden each season of the year to explore death and rejuvenation.
