More Light
By Bryony Lavery
November 17-19 at 8 p.m. | November 20 at 2 p.m. | Anderson Theatre
Henry MacCarthy, Director | Aaron Bogen'16, Original Music and Sound Design
This daring story takes us deep within the tomb of a powerful Emperor in a faraway land, where his wives that never bore him sons, have been sealed alive with the former ruler. The play examines the lives of these women and their relationships, as they struggle with moral choices and survival. A poetic, breathtaking journey of loss, discovery and empowerment.
