Why See The Suitcase Under The Bed?
The Mint Theater's Triumphant Revival Of Teresa Deevy
Teresa Deevy is a name that should be synonymous with the great Irish literary tradition. After she lost her hearing as a young woman, the dramatist turned to the pen, producing plays that were quietly revolutionary in their forward thinking approach to feminism and women's roles in her restrictive Catholic society. Yet after her initial success in the 30s, her plays were inexplicably dropped by her patron theater, and so her rightful legacy faded over the years.
Labelled by NY Times theater critic Brent Brantley as a resurrectionist extraordinaire of forgotten plays", the Mint Theater, together with artistic director and driving force Jonathan Bank, is resurrecting Deevy's lost voice in an evening of four of her short plays this Summer.
What is The Suitcase Under The Bed About?
Named for the place Deevy's forgotten works were stored for many decades, the compilation of short works shares the common theme of marriage. Romance and mystery are weaved together as seven actors shape-shift through 22 vibrant characters who interact throughout the course of one wedding, three proposals, two break-ups and one thrilling evening of theater.
Opening night: 23 August 2017
