Le Silence des chauves-souris (The Silence of Bats)
A play by Anaïs Allais Benbouali. Performed in French, with English supertitles
Oct 6-8, Mildred Dunnock Theatre, Meyerhoff Arts Center
Two young women, one of them French and one a refugee, both adrift in contemporary France, find themselves to be awkward roommates with each other and also with some bats who have roosted under their apartment’s roof. The play looks humorously at the absurdities of everyday living, while also treating seriously and tenderly themes of grief, memory, loss of security and the value of risk. This production is co-sponsored by Goucher’s Theatre and French programs, and is part of the FR/THE 272Y course, French Theatre in Avignon, Marseille and Paris.

Meyerhoff Arts Center MacArthur Fellow and playwright Mary Zimmerman Imaginatively weaves seven fairy tales into a theatrical world of mystery, wonder, and sensuality--where kings and queens and their spirited progeny navigate through forests and kingdoms and the depths of the unconscious on journeys of self-discovery. Senior theatre majors, along with other talented musicians, actors, and designers, make up a creative ensemble that will, through image, music, and poetic text, unlock the secrets within us. This production is the capstone for students majoring in theatre and part of the story-telling semester. Theatre professor Allison Campbell will direct.
