Etta & Ella on the Upper Westside by Adrienne Kennedy

One of the American theater’s seminal writers, Adrienne Kennedy captures the Black experience in America in the 20th century with a trademark embrace of symbolism, lyricism, and mythic figures. In this world premiere production, Etta and Ella Harrison are talented academics on the Upper West Side—as well as sisters and rivals. After a lifetime of competition, they are on the verge of destroying each other. Next-generation director Monty Cole employs a cinematic approach to this intricate blend of monologue, dialogue, voiceover, and prose in a work that is part experimental play, part narrative thriller.

The program includes a post-show talk on February 24 with Monty Cole, Tori Danner, Sarahjeen Francois, Wesley T. Jones, and Maleke Clemmons; moderated by Daniel Alexander Jones.

[Adrienne Kennedy is] one of the American theater’s greatest and least compromising experimentalists. — Alexis Soloski, The New York Times
