AREA PREMIERE
by David Ives
adapted from La Metromanie by Alexis Piron
Directed by Kari Steinbach
April 27 – May 20, 2018
In aristocratic Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people have gone métromanie (“crazy for poetry”). And Damis has developed a particularly severe case – he’s fallen in love with the work of a mysterious poetess. Plot twists, complications, and mistaken identities – all in rhymed verse – tumble to a happy ending in this new telling of a 1738 French farce.
“…the language is golden…almost criminally enjoyable…” –Washington Post
