Tiny Houses
by Playwrights’ Center Core Writer Stefanie Zadravec

On July 17, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 rained down upon a tiny, war-torn village in Eastern Ukraine, shot down by a surface-to-air missile launched by pro-Russian separatists. Bodies and objects alike become fodder for those trying to escape the circumstances in which they were born. Tiny Houses is a comic riff on Pandora’s Box that explores the ripple effect on several women who suddenly realize they can disrupt the status quo.

FROM STEFANIE: “Many of my plays touch on a theme of hope in a time of chaos, and the question I began with for this play was how individuals cope or activate in an increasingly chaotic political world. The play weaves a thread of incidental connections that crisscross as they trickle across the globe. Getting the balance right between storylines, magic and realism, humor and pathos—well, it takes time and that’s what I’ll be focusing on.”

Reservations will open approximately a month before the event.
