INDEPENDENCE
Written by Lee Blessing
Director: Cassandra Johnson

 
 
 
 

Date: February 08 – 10, 2018

Time: 7:00 PM

Place: Lyle Schwarz Theater

 
 
The setting is the small town of Independence, Iowa, the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs. Her oldest daughter, Kess, is a university professor in Minneapolis, but she has come home at the request of her sister, Jo who is concerned for Evelyn’s mental health. Kess, a professed lesbian, wants to cut her family ties once and for all; Jo, an incurable romantic and longtime virgin, has now become pregnant; while Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good. In the end, there is no accommodation possible but, instead, only a kind of arbitrary independence for each of the protagonists, as they come to realize that each must find her own heaven—or hell—in her own way. A powerful study of a family divided against itself. Produced to critical acclaim as part of the Humana Festival of New American Plays of the Actors Theatre of Louisville.

This production is rated “T” for teenage and older. It contains strong language.
