Fefu and Her Friends

Purdue Theater

November 11 at 7:30pm

Written in 1977, this early immersive drama is one of the best-known plays of María Irene Fornés, Cuban-American playwright and matriarch of Latinx playwriting and avant-garde theatre traditions. Set in the 1930s, eight women gather at their friend Fefu’s home to plan an educational fundraiser. While a seemingly simple plot, the play is anything but. As the audience moves through the stage space to engage with the scenes in a different order, Fornés dramatizes the complex experiences of women in patriarchal culture.

TWELFTH NIGHT by William Shakespeare

Purdue Theatre

February 17, 2022 at 7:30pm

When twins Sebastian and Viola are separated following a shipwreck, neither knows that the other is alive. Disguising herself as a young man in order to survive, Viola goes into service for Count Orsino and is sent to woo the Lady Olivia on his behalf. But Olivia falls for her instead, while Viola herself has fallen for Orsino! Shakespearean shenanigans ensue: Twelfth Night contains all the mistaken identities, gender play, joyful discovery and love that one could hope for from the Bard.

MEN ON BOATS by Jaclyn Backhaus

Purdue Theatre

April 14, 2022 at 7:30pm

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of fallible yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. By casting the historical characters (who were all men) with women and non-binary actors, Backhaus playfully destabilizes cultural assumptions and norms, using the theatre to explore new methods of storytelling and open more expansive territories for all, on stage and off.
