What does it mean to be a person – to have a body, and live in it – to make choices, and change over time – to tell the truth?
Falling, turned to stone, and falling again
Pity+Fear in an intimate and darkly comic attempt at a one-woman tragedy, featuring two women and a guitar. Over the course of the evening, Miriam & Josie fail to grapple with queer identity, platonic realism, the conflicting myths of Agraulos, and what to order for dinner.
There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt.
Pity+Fear (a travesty) was, beginning to end, incisive, insightful, sensitive and at keen times humorous without trivializing anyone’s struggles and challenges.
Written by Miriam Suzanne, with original music & lyrics by Josselyn Cool (Better Selfs, Teacup Gorilla). Designed & developed with Julie Rada, Kenny Storms, Ben Meyer Reimer, and Erin Rollman. Thanks to Buntport Theater for generously providing us a space to perform.
