hero for meek

Meek

By Penny Skinner 

Directed by Andrea L. Hart 

A Director's Studio Presentation.

In a society where women’s lives are governed by New Legislation enacted by a ruthless regime, Irene is imprisoned and finds her world limited to a series of prison cells. Her only knowledge of the outside world and the international impact of her case comes from her best friend Anna and her lawyer Gudrun. As the three women work to secure Irene’s release, each is forced to confront the limitations of their own belief, faith and love. Meek leads us on a haunting journey into the darkest recesses of human conviction and asks us to consider, when given the chance to change the world, what are we willing to sacrifice?  

Contains mature content and themes, including discussion of sexism and capital punishment.

About Director's Studio Projects 

The Director's Studio Projects are an opportunity for M.F.A. in Theatre (Directing) candidates to showcase their work. "These plays burn with passion and immediacy. They offer a chance for young directors to work quickly and bring intensity to the stage. Audiences can generally expect to see new plays, bold experiments and fresh flavors. I can't wait." - Kirk Lynn, Associate Professor (Playwriting and Directing)
