Theatre Lunatico presents Attempts On Her Life, a contemporary
postmodern play that offers insight, misdirection, contradictions, and
commentary on the life of the protagonist — Anne — the “her” of the title.
Through an intentionally ambiguous gauntlet of 17 seemingly disparate scenes,
playwright Martin Crimp attempts to define who Anne is (or was?) through hot
button topics including pop-culture, political violence, and personal identity,
among others. Theatre Lunatico’s interpretation will be physical, intimate, and
theatrical as the all-women ensemble grapples with the scenes in the script that
so accurately reflect the chaos of the current day.
Depictions of domestic violence, bigotry, and hate speech. Mentions of suicide, sexual assault, war, murder, child abuse, and use of profanity. For mature audiences only.
Attempts on Her Life will be performed by an all-female ensemble:
Movement & choreography: Gendell Hing-Hernandez
Stage manager: Adriana (Adri) Schurman
Lighting designer: Rob Bradshaw
Scenic design: Tom O’Brien
Set construction: Michael Walraven
Costumes: Loran Watkins
