Strayer-Wood Theatre: "Mad Forest" Design Presentations

Strayer-Wood Theatre artistic and production staff will discuss design presentations for the fall production of Mad Forest by Caryl Churchill and directed by Cynthia Goatley. Mad Forest places ordinary people into the churning realities of acting and defining revolution. With a wedding being planned, two families must navigate what should be a joyous occasion of union against the onslaught of threats, hearsay and chaos, that eventually topple a megalomaniacal regime. With similar events in Egypt not too distant, Churchill’s play, set in Romania during December 1989, presents a theatrical perspective on “revolution” that will speak to us all – as individuals, members of family and community, and citizens of the world.
