April 13, 14, 19, 20 & 21, 2018
Berlind Theatre, McCarter Theatre Center
The Program in Theater presents two one-act plays related to the work of María Irene Fornés — FNU LNU by Mac Wellman and an original commissioned play, THE BOOK OF MIAOU: Don’t Drink Everything Your Mother Pours You, by Migdalia Cruz. Directed by Elena Araoz with Music Direction by Vince DiMura and costume design by Sarita Fellows.
The Book of Miaou, inspired by Colette’s short story “Gribiche” & María Irene Fornés’ play Promenade, is the story of an unconventional family of cabaret performers who unite to help one of their own who collapses on stage. It is also the story of people who tell such stories and the ones who listen. A cabaret about women, reproductive rights, and memory. When you lose something, can you remember how to find it?
