It's one of our eternally futile longings: to bring the love of your life back from the dead. But what if the impossible were actually possible? What if the ultimate miracle happened? What if, laws of the cosmos be damned, she really came back?
Such is the case in Memoriam, an inventive, multidisciplinary snapshot of the aftermath of a miracle. Inspired by an ancient Greek myth and millennia of wishful thinking, playwright Stephen Kaliski (West Lethargy, Gluten!) reunites a dead queen with her grieving king and then asks, "Is she really back?" What follows is a whirling journey through the looking glass of loss, memory, and the uncertain ownership we have over our own lives.
Memoriam is directed by Elizabeth Ostler and co-produced by Hypnic Theatre Company and Adjusted Realists, recipients of a 2016 Off Broadway Angels grant and creators of Gluten! at 59E59 Theaters and the acclaimed revival of Nicky Silver's Pterodactyls at Teatro Circulo.
