FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Thursday, April 4, 2013

Dream of Autumn
It seems a chance meeting, two former lovers in a cemetery, where the man will bury his grandmother. But nothing is as it seems, all of life, of lives, of history, is going to emerge from the dreamlike shadows as these two do battle against each other, then turn together to face the forces of the past and future. Written by one of Europe's leading playwrights, Jon Fosse's lyrical and erotic drama provides urgent testimony to the fact that our loves and lives will be the death of us all. World premiere translation by director Sarah Cameron Sunde starring Martin Giles, Karla Boos, Laurie Klatscher, and Gregory Lehane.
