ABOUT THE WORKS-IN-PROGRESS

*******

A SQUID HAS THREE HEARTS
A new work-in-progress by Mark Sweeney

​A Squid Has Three Hearts explores environmental, personal, and political themes around the mystery of the Giant Squid, as well as the growth in squid populations that has occurred because of the rise of temperature in the oceans waters. Biology, mythology, and music act as connective tissue for a series of vignettes about the human experience.

​*******

DR. FALSTAFF AND THE WORKING WIVES OF LAKE COUNTY
A new work-in-progress by Scotty Reynolds

Using Otto Nicolai’s 1849 opera—The Merry Wives of Windsor—as a springboard, Dr. Falstaff and the Working Wives of Lake County explores the closing of the Reserve Mining Corporation in Silver Bay, the landmark legal battles to stop the dumping of waste rock in Lake Superior, and the layoffs that reduced population of Silver Bay more than 70% in two decades. In the tradition of a Shakespeare wedding comedy, a series of mistaken identities leads to a happy ending wherein new seeds are planted to celebrate and renew a town on an economic precipice.

WE HAD A SECOND BATHROOM
A new work-in-progress by Eva Adderley and Jordan Lee Thompson

In We Had A Second Bathroom, Lea returns to her childhood home for the first time in over a decade, where she finds the long forgotten second bathroom that her mother moved a cabinet in front of when she was six. Rediscovering the second bathroom leads Lea to think about the existence of the alternate reality she and her family had lived in for years— a reality in which they had only one bathroom. The unraveling of this reality leads Lea down a rabbit hole of memories that force her to confront the construction of not only her past, but her present reality.
