ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Things as They Are
Written by David Todd
Original score composed by Ben Chasny
Directed by Anjanette Hall
May 12 – 28, 2017
Reinberger Auditorium (Upstairs Loft)

SYNOPSIS
Things as They Are is a meditation on the life and work of American poet Wallace Stevens. A collage of scenes, poems, movement, and original music, Things as They Are looks past the stock image of Stevens as an aloof attorney to find a striving son, an uncertain husband and father, a part-time comedian, and a full-time Modern giant. The play tracks its subject from run-ins with Marcel Duchamp in the 1910s to Ernest Hemingway in the 1930s, from crises with wife Elsie to reconciliations with daughter Holly, and from his beloved Pennsylvania countryside to his exotic refuge of Key West. Through a series of linked vignettes, it reveals the real Wallace Stevens to be a man of great insight, contradictions, whimsy, and desire.

Things as They Are was written by David Todd, and includes excerpts from Wallace Stevens’ original work by arrangement with Alfred A. Knopf. Directed by Anjanette Hall, this world premiere features an original score composed and performed by Ben Chasny, the creative force behind the celebrated group Six Organs of Admittance.
