2017 Plays & Workshops
One House Over
Written by: Catherine Trieschmann Directed by: Mark Clements
When Rafael and Camila Hernandez move in downstairs to help Joanne with her elderly father, Joanne breathes a little easier. She needs their help, and they need jobs. But she can’t anticipate the complications that arise when “the help” starts to feel like family…and act like it. A brilliantly funny and provocative new piece by one of today’s hottest playwrights, it’s an empathetic but searing examination of boundaries, power, privilege, and fear in a single backyard.
“Trieschmann…has the courage to ask tougher questions.”— Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Trieschmann’s writing is taut and laced with irony….a big accomplished writer’s voice.”— The New York Times
Cast: Hollis Resnick, others TBD
