The Sea & The Stars by Harrison David Rivers

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Florida, 1929: a Cuban-American family eagerly awaits the arrival of a new lector to read aloud to their cigar factory workers. When he introduces them to the classic Anna Karenina, a hot and humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic. Love, revenge, passion, and tragedy abound in this award-winning drama.

[CRUZ] HAS TURNED OUT MANY WONDERFUL PLAYS — BUT NONE MORE SHIMMERINGLY BEAUTIFUL.

EDNA PONTELLIER HAS ZERO EFFS LEFT TO GIVE. Nothing is really wrong, at all, except for the inconvenient fact that she's slowly dying inside. Here we have one woman's struggle to become her most authentic self, amidst a society unwilling to see her for who she is. Music, waves, and sexual tension thick as the humid New Orleans air combine to tell this hilarious, heartbreaking, and beautiful story. Adapted freely from Kate Chopin's landmark feminist novel.

“[THE AWAKENING] is an amazing show: it had me on the edge of my seat, and on multiple occasions wanting to jump out of it with cheers.” (Critic Jay Gabler, review of the 2010 production)

Originally produced in 2010, Savage Umbrella dives back into Chopin's vibrant world to reimagine this classic tale for it's 10th anniversary season!

Written and directed by Laura Leffler-McCabe
​Music by Candace Emberley
Created with Savage Umbrella and the ensembles
