Red Death
by Lisa D’Amour
Directed by Juanita Rockwell
Set/Costume Design: Elena Zlotescu
Light/Sound Design: Terry Cobb

Jane Whithers is searching for the origin of evil, the root of denial, and the basic human weakness that causes us to fear death. Her quest takes her to the beaches of Florida, the sewers of Texas, the center of the Adriatic Sea, and beyond, as she pursues her childhood friend, Prospero Albright (who might be the key to everything). A twenty-first century riff on Edgar Allen Poe’s Masque of the Red Death.

The production will be directed by Juanita Rockwell, a director, writer and dramaturge with over 20 years experience developing new works for theatre, opera, radio and multi-media. She is a member of the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers (SSDC) and Dramatists Guild and recently received an Individual Artist Award in Playwriting from the Maryland State Arts Council.
