O Widow Lazarus. The last part of a piece developed around the Djuna Barnes novel: a hysterical break-up that breaks into song. It culls the sentiments stirred by melodramas and musicals to wonder what’s after desire. How does refusal and discarding answer the yearning for transcendence and, emphatically, how does that feel? We know at least: there will be singing.
Written by Tim Reid and Julia Jarcho
Performed by Alexander Borinsky, Abigail Bouchet, Alison D’Amato, Dorothy Dubrule, and Tim Reid
Music directed and composed by Amy Golden, with Ethan Marks, Cody Puttman, and Jonny Stallings
“‘And you were crying,’ the doctor said nodding. ‘You went about the house like someone sunken under lightness. You were ruined and you kept striking your hands together, laughing crazily and singing a little and putting your hands over your face. Stage tricks have been taken from life, so finding yourself employing them you were confused with a sense of shame.’” — Djuna Barnes, Nightwood
