  • Drama

In what’s considered her signature theatrical piece, once hailed as “the theater event of the year” (Time), Tony Award-winning director and playwright Mary Zimmerman juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in a visually stunning theatricalization of Roman poet Ovid’s powerful masterwork, Metamorphoses. Performed in and around a large pool of water, a ravishing effect, an ensemble of actors embodies figures from Greek mythology to share both well-known and rarely told stories of transformation.

  • Drama
  • Comedy

Cyrano de Bergerac is the full package: he’s a poet, playwright and consummate swordsman. The only thing standing in the way of declaring his love for Roxane is his grotesquely large nose. When Roxane confesses that she’s fallen for a handsome young cadet named Christian, Cyrano takes him under his wing, adds brains to his beauty and, through Christian, expresses his own feelings to Roxane without her suspecting a thing. Wit, wordplay and rousing passion make this a heroic comedy for the ages.

Join us for our one public showing of this year's Living Room Tour.

"In retrospect, I think our bed frame might have been the beginning of the end.
It seems possible, doesn’t it, that you can tell life’s journey by how portable your bed is?"
Alexa is a brilliant visual artist. Or she was. Now she works on ads for Panda Buffet and futon stores. While also juggling her children, husband, parents. And what may or may not be the end of Earth's atmosphere. But all that was Before. Now she's circling in on what's changed, what she's lost and whether her art can once more save her and just possibly all of humanity.  

Stranded On Earth is a poetic labyrinth of a monologue about the cost of putting down roots and the cost of exploding free.

Performing in the Red Room at Good Arts Collective located at 810 S 7th St in Downtown MPLS. Note: GAC is located in First Covenant Church Minneapolis. The building is locked but there will be a Swandive member there to let you in and signs to direct to you the performance space.

Tickets are Pay What We're Worth: see the show FIRST, then following the performance pay whatever you like with cash, check, or card.

Performance rated 11+ for language and strong themes.
