EVENT: “Hurricane Diane” by Madeleine George

DATES: February 6 - March 10



presented by WP Theater and New York Theatre Workshop
by Madeleine George
directed by Leigh Silverman
at New York Theatre Workshop

Meet Diane, a permaculture gardener dripping with butch charm. She’s got supernatural abilities owing to her true identity—the Greek god Dionysus—and she’s returned to the modern world to gather mortal followers and restore the Earth to its natural state. Where better to begin than with four housewives in a suburban New Jersey cul-de-sac? Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George pens a hilarious evisceration of the blind eye we all turn to climate change and the bacchanalian catharsis that awaits us, even in our own backyards. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (WP Theater’s Bright Half Life) directs.
