An adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch’s 15th century triptych “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” Wood Calls Out to Wood is a painting presented as a play, a landscape turned into a soundscape. Written in language that is both precise and deeply silly, the play experiments with the possibilities of combination–of single syllables combining to make words and single people combining to make couples. At first, the audience encounters it as they would a picture hanging on a distant wall, in large swaths of color and pattern. When taking a closer look, however, strange Boschian beings begin to emerge: Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a human with a grape for a head.
Join us for a talk-back with the playwright, director, and set/costume designer following the performance on November 5!
