Performed at the Ontological-Hysteric, New York City, August 13 – 22, 2009
Named a Top 10 Show of 2009 by Time Out New York
“Ridiculous, enchanting musical Family... full to the brim with killer talent.”
“Family re-invents downtown experimental theater for the new millennium—and has a tremendous lot of fun doing it.”
Running time: 75 minutes.
Twenty-year old Lily is about to be impregnated with Rudolf Nureyev’s frozen sperm to make her mother happy. Little sister Frarajaca wants to stage an artistic gangbang. And Mum doesn’t want to deal with anymore goddamn idiots. It’s a family drama. Sort of. Writer/director Tina Satter’s new one-act is an unexpected, musically-enhanced, and close-up look at the ridiculous and inexplicable nature of families and the kinds of love we can’t escape.
