Celebrando Fornés

The Summer in Gossensass

María Irene Fornés

Calarts, Coffeehouse Theater

   December 2019​

Calarts' celebration of María Fornés began with a dramatic retelling of the first London production of Ibsen's Hedda Gabbler, with Fornés's imagined theatrical personalities running about an English drawing room.

The lighting built with the characters' energy as they strove to understand Hedda, theatre, and their own desire to perform.
