Event Details:

Alchemy of Desire/Dead Man?s Blues explores the question of how we cope with incalculable loss. In this play, a young woman is haunted by the death of her husband in an unnamed war. She is lost in a swamp of grief and longing. The women of her community struggle to sweep her back into the land of the living with earth magic, songs and buckets of fried chicken.
