Blood-bound and Tongue-tied
by Jacqueline E. Lawton | World Premiere
March 23-April 7, 2012
“What you’re trying to hide won’t stay hid.”
One of humanity’s most primal stories is reimagined with compassion and poetry in this ambitious offering from our Friends & Neighbors Festival. Jocasta is a young black woman in depression-era Texas, who decides to pass as white in the big city. When she marries Laius—the heir to an oil baron—and becomes pregnant with Oedipus, her racial identity cannot remain hidden…or can it? One desperate lie instigates a catastrophic wave of bloodshed, and disaster envelops a nation.

“I wanted to crawl right into her skin, and I couldn’t push her far enough away.”
Noted solo performer Lisa has written her first multi-character play, a riff on her and her mother Ann’s knotty history with chronic illness. But as she presents her story, nothing goes to plan. Ann won’t stay put in her recliner. The chorus can’t keep track of their scenes. Childhood nemesis Lori Jones keeps popping up. As Lisa struggles to maintain control of the show and herself, she confronts her greatest fear: turning into her mother.
