Threshold presents the World Premiere of the heartbreaking poetic docudrama TERRORiSTKA by Rebecca Bella, directed by Jessica Holt.

TERRORiSTKA tells the true story of a young Chechen woman who attempts to flee her war-ravaged country by joining a rebel faction that trains her as a suicide bomber. The play tracks this woman's journey from the Caucasus mountains to the crowded streets of Moscow.  It contemplates her passage from innocence to menace and finally to an understanding of her own tragedy.

On a broader scale, it examines how young people can become entangled in violence and enable the conflicts that destroy their lives. This expressionist drama is an important examination of the psychology of suicide bombers, as well as a serious and timely meditation on women's involvement in war.  

Directed by Jessica Holt, one of the hottest emerging directors on the Bay Area theatre scene, and produced by Threshold: theatre on the verge, this lament for the lost and lullaby for the future is not be missed.

Featuring: Sarose Butler, Alex Curtis, Molly Holcomb, Kate Jopson, Adrienne Krug, Geof Libby, and Andy Strong

Featuring sound design by Gregory Scharpen (Resident Sound Designer, Central Works), costume design by Tammy Berlin (Resident Costume Designer, Central Works), scenic design by Chad Owens, lighting design by Alison Ostendorf, and movement choreography by Marilee Talkington.

Founded by Jessica Holt, Alex Curtis and Pamela Davis, Threshold: theatre on the verge is a dynamic new company emerging on the Bay Area scene. Grown out of a UC Berkeley directors' workshop, Threshold is dedicated to creating bold, innovative theater. Threshold challenges artists and audiences to imagine the edges of the possible in a process-based environment that embraces risk, growth and change. Our work is surprising and immediate and embraces the poetry of language and physical space.

Artistic Director Jessica Holt: "Threshold was founded on the shared belief that theatremaking is alive with risk, alive with language, metaphor, material bodies, and emotional expression. At its best, theatre creates a kind of alchemy of time and space, where imagination is encouraged to take flight. Rebecca Bella's TERRORiSTKA perfectly complements our vision and mission. We are so proud to be the first company to produce Rebecca's important play."
