    October 27 - November 19, 2016


    With Great Difficulty Alice Sits

    Pregnancy enjoys exalted status in our society. It is a thrilling period in the life of a couple. People congratulate you; showers are thrown; classes are taken; doctors are assessed; nurseries are prepared. And then there are the questions, questions, questions - how are you? how far along are you? are you going to learn the sex of the baby? are you going to reveal the name of the baby? are you going to enroll the baby in early Spanish classes?

    But nothing deadens joy like other people’s excitement.

    With Great Difficulty Alice Sits is the story of Alice and Heath, a pregnant couple trapped in the most joyful time of their lives. They are expecting - and expecting and expecting and expecting and expecting. The longer they wait, the further they slip into anxiety and despair, and their possible daughter becomes an instrument of torment.

     Warning: This play is only sometimes funny.

    Performances by Derek Kolluri, Rupert Reyes, Renna Larson, and Hannah Kenah.

    Directed by Jenny Larson. Design by Stephanie Busing, Alyssa Dillard, Robert Fisher, Jessica Gilzow, and Julia Smith.
