The Scullery Maid

  • The Edge Theater

a Chicago Premiere by Joseph Zettelmaier                                                                

Directed by IMTC Artistic Director, Evan Jackson

As King Edward celebrates an uneasy truce with France, the lowliest servant in Nottingham castle, Miriam the scullery maid, initiates a murder plot that will see him dead before the night is done - no matter the cost.  Loyalties and conspiracies unravel as a raging tempest sets in, giving rise to new betrayals and unearthing long-buried secrets as Miriam approaches the point of no return.  Religious, political and familial identities all clash with storm-like intensity in a medieval thriller that asks:  are we defined by our prejudices or can we escape becoming what we hate?

Run Time: Approximately 2 hours, including one ten minute intermission.

The Veil

  • The Edge Theater

With her family facing financial ruin as the Irish rural way of life comes to an end, Hannah's impending marriage to a British lord will settle her mother's debts and save the estate.  Catastrophe strikes, however, when a defrocked reverend pushes her to embrace the strange voices that have haunted her since birth.  Against the backdrop of Ireland's troubled colonial history, The Veil is a transfixing, mystical story about the search for love and the circularity of time - and the ghosts that are woken by scarcity and the fear of dispossession.
