Theatre de la Jeune Lune vets conspire in "The House Can't Stand"
Now opening this weekend at the U's Rarig Center is The House Can't Stand, written and performed by TJL's Steven Epp and directed by Dominique Serrand (it's a second chance to see the show, which played at the Southern Theater last October).
It's an experimental sort of drama, in which a woman (Epp) finds herself alone and isolated in her house after her children drift away and her husband dies. A phone call then leads her out into the world, ostensibly to prevent an act of violence; what transpires leads her both into the depths of her own mind and the American past.
