Directed by Catherine Tripp
June 25 – July 26, 2009
“Director Catherine Tripp has accomplished a vivid work – disorderly and feverish but making it seem quite plausible. Here is an unconventional journey within the Latin magical realism genre toward an unexpectedly optimistic final chronicle of three women’s search for love and trust.” -Potomac Stages
A wealthy woman invites two strangers to join her in a strange feast commemorating the death of her parents. Mayannah has done this every year but her dark purpose remains unclear. All that will change tonight when two damaged souls find their way to her table. Taking place in a not-so-distant future, the sounds of a war-torn Los Angeles fill the air. Tensions rise, true colors are revealed and the main course is not the only thing with claws.
