FEDRA: QUEEN OF HAITI

October 1 – November 16, 2009

Water Tower Water Works

Written by Ensemble Member J. Nicole Brooks
Directed by Ensemble Member Laura Eason

Lookingglass’ 22nd season opens with an explosive retelling of Phaedra that would make Euripides, Seneca and Jean Racine blush. This story of power and lust is set in a re-imagined Haiti that stands as the world’s greatest superpower. Only the fiercely mischievous pen of Ensemble Member J. Nicole Brooks (Black Diamond) could so ignite the hidden power of this enduring myth. Award-winning Ensemble Member Laura Eason (Around the World in 80 Days) directs Lookingglass’ 51st World Premiere.

Featuring Ensemble Members J. Nicole Brooks and Anthony Fleming III, Artistic Associates Lisa Tejero and Lauren Hirte, with Morocco Omari, Michael E. Salinas, Sharina Martin, and Tamberla Perry.
