Edna Pontellier has zero effs left to give. Nothing is really wrong, at all, except for the inconvenient fact that she’s slowly dying inside. Here we have one woman’s struggle to become her most authentic self, amidst a society unwilling to see her for who she is. Music, waves, and sexual tension thick as the humid New Orleans air. Adapted freely from Kate Chopin’s landmark feminist novel. Savage Umbrella creates new works of theater striving to engage artists and audiences in critical conversation. With lust for the uncharted and the unknown; Savage Umbrella embraces and dissects the familiar. The company believes that theater is a vehicle for important and complex conversations about who we are, how we are, where we come from, and how we connect with each other. Together is better. Get under the umbrella.
