Program Notes

These dramatic gems envelop characters within contentious and powerfully resonant scenes. In them, figures combat physical threats, rehashed memories, and awkward exchanges. Punctuated by dashes of laughter, Charged Spaces is high on drama, but also vibrantly human.

 

Ticketholder must be in line 15 minutes prior to show time. No refunds or exchanges.
