"The Inland Sea" at Macalester College

The Macalester College Theatre and Dance Department presents "The Inland Sea" by Naomi Wallace beginning November 11th.

This production is the U.S. Premiere of a work by one of the most eloquent and radical American playwrights. It's set in 1760s northern England, on an estate that's clearing land to create the quintessential English pastoral landscape -- thereby displacing the poor and bringing them into direct conflict with those who are hired to dig. The play is about Empire and the dreams of Empire, it's about class warfare, it's about connections among fantasy, sex, violence, the land, and bodies, and it's about race and work. JUST FOR STARTERS. I said to the cast after the first read-through: "this is ambitious, ferocious and gorgeous."
