Official Description

A figure in the wall paper. A floating door. A bowl of eels. Wings.

These and other images have been left behind in the haunting, black and white photography of Francesca Woodman, a prolific prodigy who died by suicide in 1981 at the age of 22.

Decades later, her work, her life, and her death captured the imagination of playwright George Brant, author of DARK ROOM.

In the play, eleven scenes unfold, each inspired by a different photograph from Woodman's canon. A single, silent protagonist -- a simple girl in a polka dot dress -- navigates the journey.

Under the direction of Olivia D'Ambrosio, this world premiere production will feature an epic cast of 24 women, and original movement devised by Doppelgänger Dance Collective.

At once humorous, dark, eerie, and poetic, DARK ROOM will play this summer in the stunning Multicultural Arts Center. Please join us for an unforgettable theatrical event. Learn more at
