Check out the photos of The Trip’s adaptation of Orpheus and Eurydice, written and directed by Tom Dugdale, and performed last December at the Molli and Arthur Wagner Theatre in San Diego. I worked as a dramaturg with Tom on this production which was nominated for a Craig Noel Award. The Trip is a young theatre company in San Diego and seeing their work always reminds me of why I love theatre so much, that it can still be urgent, community-based, serious but not serious, profound…I love how Tom revisits myths that are larger than life and infuses them with a quotidian form of intimacy. His adaptation of Alcestis, entitled We Only Live Once, was recently performed at the MStudio Movement Theatre in Romania (check out photos here: http://www.tomdugdale.net/we-only-live-once.html)
