Edward Albee’s OCCUPANT

BUY TICKETS

Facts are in dispute and words are in question in this late-career masterpiece by multiple Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia WoolfA Delicate Balance). A little Jewish girl from Russia immigrated to the US and became the renowned sculptor Louise Nevelson. In Albee’s Occupant, she’s been invited to participate in an interview -- from beyond the grave. Through her ups and downs, her contradictions and evasions, we witness the deep inner turmoil and intrepid triumphs of one of the 20th century’s greatest artistic minds. Starring Susan Rome, this surprising, touching, and delicious play is an unabashed exploration of how a pioneer for free-thinking women everywhere found her voice.
