2013 Metamorphoses

2013 Metamorphoses

June 21 – July 21, 2013 – Metamorphoses, by Mary Zimmerman

An elderly couple questions whether the end of life means the end of love. A greedy father finds he’s gotten more than he wanted when everything he touches turns to gold. A son tries to emulate his father and nearly destroys the Earth. A suspicious wife learns too late the value of trust and spends years in penance. The characters in Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses grapple with experiences that at first seem outlandish but upon closer examination are very much like ours. Forbidden love. Unbridled greed. Thwarted ambition. The ten deceptively simple stories in this lyrical play—which takes place around a gorgeous pool of water —reveal what it means to be human, and to be in love.
