In the Garden of Live Flowers: A Fantasia on the Life and Work of Rachel Carson
March 15 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location: Eastvold Auditorium - Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
Ali Rose Schultz ‘14, Director | Attilio Favorini & Lynne Conner, Playwrights
As author Rachel Carson struggles to complete her book, Silent Spring, she simultaneously fights both her progressing breast cancer and various factions of American enterprise that launch a crusade against her reputation. Carson’s solace is found in Alice in Wonderland, the imaginative guide her subconscious clings to. Carson’s story converges with a fantastical landscape enlivened by literary, film and cultural references that theatricalize the revolutionary science of Silent Spring. Mariah Madden, Lighting Designer; Ali Rose Schultz ‘14, Director.
