Keeril Makan and Jay Scheib: Persona
Thursday, November 9, 2017 to Sunday, November 12, 2017

Based on Ingmar Bergman’s classic film, Persona is a provocative and artistically complex depiction of human frailty, cruelty and identity. In an isolated summer house, a young nurse becomes caretaker of a stage actress who has suddenly lost the ability to speak. The deepening layers of their unsettling relationship unfold in a taut psychological drama, revealed through a unique aural landscape and a richly layered production. Composed by Keeril Makan. Librettist / Director, Jay Scheib.
Running time is approximately 90 minutes, performed without intermission.
Each performance will be followed by a post-performance talkback with the Persona creative team.
