Approximate Run Time: 60 minutes, no intermission
Why Do You Always Wear Black? is an original, devised work featuring the women of Anton Chekhov’s plays who confront the joy, despair, and absurdity of being a woman in 19th century Russia as well as contemporary America. This innovative, theatrical work weaves together Chekhov’s world and our own modern backwardness, with a healthy dose of radical feminism and sock puppets.
Directed by company member Anna H. Gelman, devised by the ensemble.
