Dixon Place has commissioned what looks to be quite an interesting new musical from the experimental ensemble harunalee theater company. The piece, written by Kristine Haruna Lee (playwright) and Katie Hathaway (composer) premiers this Friday. It’s based on an Inuit myth about a woman who is rejected from her family for being different and embarks upon a journey creating wars with others and within herself.
The creators note that it “deals with impossible probabilities, ridiculous heartbreak, and absurdity in which anything, and that means anything, goes. WAR LESBIAN is set in a universe where Ellen DeGeneres is a demonic demi-god and digging for truths and covering up holes can cause wars.”
