Catharsis and Communion: A Note from the Chair Apollo was the god of music and healing, but it was his brother Dionysus–the god of wine and theatre–who had the power to alleviate human suffering and bring joy. To thank him for these gifts, the ancient Greeks held no fewer than five festivals per year, two of which celebrated him through the presentation of plays. The Athenians built an amphitheater in their city center, where they gathered annually for the Great Dionysia, watching plays that reflected their shared values, fears, and dreams. Aristotle, our first known drama critic, argued that the purpose of tragedy was “katharsis.” Tragedy could purge the mind and spirit of negative emotions, allowing the psyche to heal. But theatre also provides the chance for “koinonia”—communion and fellowship. And to participate on either side of the footlights, we must learn empathy. It is likely that this is the strongest reason for theatre’s emergence as an essential human activity, long before the ancient Greeks. Theatre supported group cohesion, improving our chances of survival. Since March of 2020, we have had few opportunities for communion. Recently, some of us have been fortunate enough to emerge from our bubbles—sometimes hesitantly, sometimes enthusiastically—to convene with friends, family, colleagues, and even strangers. Tonight, following a year and a half of canceled and online-only performances, we will return to the Babcock to share space and stories. We will gather in person and online to watch as three sisters reunite to process the traumas of their past, the fraying of their ties in the present, and the precipitous decline and loss of their father—all by reenacting a version of King Lear they created as children. We will see the alchemy that happens in theatre, where grief cracks open to reveal slapstick comedy, profound empathy, and even joy. Theatre is more than tragedy. It gives us more than catharsis. Through the wonders of modern science and technology (and a lot of caution and consideration) we can gather here to celebrate healing of a different kind. Through communion, we can find meaning in the face of tragedy, as we tell stories with playful, joyful abandon.

Welcome back. We’ve missed you.

A NOTE FROM DIRECTOR ALEXANDRA HARBOLD

It is not theater that is indispensable but: to cross the frontiers between you and me; to come forward to meet you, so that we do not get lost in the crowd–or among words or in declarations, or among the beautifully precise thoughts. Jerzy Grotowski

In Gab Reisman’s Storm Still, three sisters have all shouldered their tempestuous father’s decline and death in very different ways. By playing a game of pretend from their childhood, they are able to reconnect through an act of collaborative storytelling. As they swap their father’s hats (often literally) and perform their own fast and loose version of Shakespeare’s King Lear, they all reckon with the past and its imprint on their relationships and choices. Storm Still speaks to the agility of theatre: its ability to not only divert and entertain (with swashbuckling, clowning, music and dancing, words, declarations, and beautifully precise thoughts), but also to create a space where we can encounter each other–as characters and as humans, with all the complexity that implies–as we process life and loss. Things I’ve learned from Storm Still: When it’s backyard rules, it doesn’t matter what we wear. We can swap hats and see things differently. We can pause and dance. We can always add new parts. In Adam Szymkowicz’s “I Interview Playwrights” conversation with Reisman, he asked what one thing she would change about the theatre. She concluded her response with this invitation/invocation: “Let both the art and the business of theatre be an exercise in hospitality.” Amen, welcome, and à votre santé!

REWRITING THE NARRATIVE BY DRAMATURG ELLIE OTIS

What is the true story of King Lear? Is it the story of a frail old man who is tormented by his two eldest daughters and left out in a raging storm to fend for himself? For the last few centuries, it has been. However, modern adaptations of Lear, including Storm Still, are shining light onto the sisters Goneril and Regan, using the text Shakespeare gave us to show that these women were not evil, vicious hags who sought power and destruction, but rather oppressed women living in a society that prioritizes the man’s worth over their own. Storm Still brings Goneril and Regan (along with their often idealized younger sister Cordelia) into the flesh as real, three-dimensional women who had to live under their aging and mentally deteriorating father, whose signs of affection were given only to those who proved most “loyal” to him. Storm Still is part of a modern wave reclaiming Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia as fully fleshed-out human beings whose actions rise from an oppressive patriarchal society, rather than the twodimensional beings we have been trained to view them as. Rather than the two evil sisters and the perfect daughter we’ve seen crafted into our fairy tales, this production aims to give you a whole new perspective on these women, and how their individual battles to survive in a man’s world brought them together, only to ultimately tear them apart. King Lear begins with the titular character deciding to give up his reign as king, dividing his possessions among his three daughters: Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia. He demands for them to share how much they love him in order to get land. The two eldest daughters craft false speeches of their adoration for him. Cordelia, however, refuses to do so, stating her love for her father should not be measured against possessions. Furious, Lear banishes her and states he and his hundred knights will live with Goneril and Regan on a rotating monthly basis. Meanwhile, Edmund the Bastard, son to Gloucester and brother to the legitimate Edgar, conspires to be rid of Edgar so that he can inherit his father’s wealth and land. He tricks Edgar into thinking Gloucester is upset with him, causing Edgar to escape into the forest, and fools Gloucester into thinking that Edgar is trying to murder him to usurp his power. To evade capture, Edgar disguises himself as an insane beggar named Poor Tom.


Throughout the play, Goneril and Regan begin to stand up to Lear and his unfair treatment of them. He responds by calling them hags and whores, cursing Goneril to become barren. The two women undermine his power, and Lear flies into a rage and leaves them, running into the forest with his fool and his right hand man, Kent. While in the forest, the trio stumble upon Poor Tom and Lear, whose mental health is rapidly deteriorating into insanity, warmly welcomes the madman into the group despite pleas from the Fool and Kent to leave him behind. The two women go on to use their intelligence and cunning to help win Britain’s war against France. However, Edmund comes between them when he vies for both their love, turning the sisters against each other, which ends up being their ultimate downfall. Meanwhile, Cordelia, now Queen of France, finds her father and forgives him, nursing him back to health and protecting him from her two older sisters. However, both Cordelia and her father are eventually captured, and Edmund conspires to kill her in the prison. The play ends with Lear weeping over his youngest daughter’s body, his other two daughters lying dead only a few feet away. He then dies, leaving Edgar and Kent to be the next rulers of Britain. How can we as a society work to retell the story of these three women? To make sure they live on as the human beings Shakespeare crafted them to be, rather than the caricatures we’ve been taught to see them as? How can we stop the narrative and recreate our own?

Be govern’d by your knowledge, and proceed I’ the sway of your own will. — Cordelia, 4.7
