The Alcyone Festival 09

June 11 through July 18, 2009
Performances were at the Lincoln Square Theatre

For this years Alcyone Festival, we decided to play with the notion that women only write small domestic dramas, picking a theme as far away from that as possible: terrorism, the cult of martyrdom and its effects upon the innocents. The Alcyone Festival 2009 features six phenomenal writers from across the globe in rotating repertory.

The Black Eyed by Betty Shamieh
The Blessed Child by Astrid Saalbach

Fucking Parasites by Ninna Tersman
