Wood Calls Out To Wood
An adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century triptych "The Garden of Earthly Delights," Wood Calls Out to Wood is a painting presented as a play, a landscape turned into a soundscape. Written in language that is both precise and deeply silly, the play experiments with the possibilities of combination--of single syllables combining to make words and single people combining to make couples. At first, the audience encounters it as they would a picture hanging on a distant wall, in large swaths of color and pattern. When taking a closer look, however, strange Boschian beings begin to emerge: Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a human with a grape for a head.

Join us for a talk-back with the writer, director, and set/costume designer following the performance on 11/5!

CORINNE DONLYs (Playwright) plays include Wood Calls Out to Wood (2017 Weasel Festival, the Public Theater); Because of the Mud (B-Side Fest, the Wild Project); The Gray Notebook (Target Margin's Lab Series, the Bushwick Starr); Wild Whore Says: Couldn't Drag Me Away (Brooklyn Arts Exchange); and The Brutes (Toronto Theatre Center). Donly holds an MFA in playwriting from Brooklyn College, an MA in Integral Ecology, and a BFA in acting from NYUS Experimental Theatre Wing.
