AUNT DAN AND LEMON
Senior Company 2016
The Senior Company 2016 presented Wallace Shawn’s AUNT DAN AND LEMON in December 2015.
There’s something inside us that likes to kill…Welcome to the mind of Lemon, a reclusive young woman with an unspecified chronic illness, who sits in her apartment reading books and reliving her life story from inside her head. As she struggles to contemplate a world that thrives on genocide, she regales us with tales and memories of Aunt Dan, who applies Kissinger’s doctrine of ‘realpolitik’ to her private life – a life where all relationships are complex power games played out through an amoral, ruthless filter. Are you comfortable? Sit down. Odds are, there’s blood on your hands. Co-directed by Aaron Matis and Eileen Hou. Performed by Derek Graves, Chris Malafronti, Lila Weitzner, Max Marckel, Michelle Johnson, Madeleine Pattis, and Michaela Shuchman. Set by Emma Kates-Shaw, Lights by Amanda Jensen, Sound by Elizabeth Atkinson, Costumes by Rebecca Kanach.
