A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Welcome to Yale Repertory Theatre! In a Year with 13 Moons marks the first collaboration between actor Bill Camp and director Robert Woodruff since their acclaimed 2009 production of Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground at Yale Rep. Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1978 film, from which the play is adapted, is a masterpiece of the New German Cinema movement and reflects a host of influences—from the existential philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer, to the brightly colored 1950s melodramas of Douglas Sirk, to the slapstick comedy of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis’s buddy movies. It’s a deeply felt artistic response to the global scars left by the Second World War as well as to the personal trauma wrought by the suicide of Fassbinder’s own lover. Robert Woodruff and Bill Camp celebrate Fassbinder’s unique aesthetic and have infused his remarkable story with their own tremendous sense of theatricality. Yale Rep has become an artistic home for Robert, and I’m thrilled to welcome him and Bill back to our stage, as well as so many of Robert’s longtime collaborators. In 13 Moons, they introduce (or reintroduce) us to the tragic central figure, Elvira, at a moment of extreme crisis which allows, indeed necessitates, the breathtaking range of events and emotions depicted in the play, as well as our own individual responses to them. The questions that In a Year with 13 Moons raises—about the lengths to which one may go to love and to be loved, the search for one’s own place in the world—are visceral. We understand them on a gut level, even though they may not be answered easily. I’m grateful to have adventurous audience members like you along for the ride. Whether this is your first visit to Yale Rep or you are a long-time subscriber, thank you for being here today and for making our 2012–13 season such a remarkable experience. I look forward to hearing what you think and feel about In a Year with 13 Moons (my email address is email@example.com), and to seeing you back at Yale Rep in the fall.

VIA JUXTAPOSA: FASSBINDER, in a backstory for In a Year with 13 Moons, Rainer Werner Fassbinder wrote that we are witnessing “the encounters a man experiences during the last five days of his life.” When we first meet Erwin, our hero, he has already become Elvira—the ineluctable, irreversible choices that set him on his final “way of sorrows” have already been made. Fassbinder, who was a playwright as well as a filmmaker, creates a form for the piece that borrows from medieval morality plays like everyman, from religious rituals like the stations of the cross, and from expressionist subjective dramaturgies like august strindberg’s To damascus, to examine the life of a modern martyr for love. To heighten the impact of each “station,” or episode, we see, In a Year with 13 Moons deploys the alchemy of juxtaposition. alchemy is a mystical process of turning base metals into gold. however, writing in the wake of personal and national catastrophe,

BIOGRAPHY, AND BACKGROUND Fassbinder also deploys a reverse alchemy, debasing the “gold” of German high culture, cutting his patrimony with shards of popular culture and obscenity—an assemblage of fragments shored against its author’s ruin. Juxtaposition, which occurs when two or more discreet things join to create something greater by their placement in proximity one to the other, defers meaning-making until the work arrives in the receiver. To be entrusted with this responsibility as an audience requires that we become perceptive receptors, holding things we’ve just seen, heard, and felt in readiness, to allow them to join with what’s coming next. Behind the images of Rainer Werner Fassbinder are some of the disparate threads that cohere to create context in In a Year with 13 Moons.

XIII it was an existential necessity to make anything at all. there were three possibilities open to me: the first was to go to Paraguay and become a farmer. Why Paraguay I don’t know. It just came to me. The other possibility was to stop being interested in whatever was around me. That would surely have led to a kind of mental disorder. The third option was to make a movie. Of course this was the easiest one for me. It was really very logical to do that. It’s important to me that I made a film that didn’t simply transpose my own feelings about this suicide. Like the pain and sadness about the fact that I had failed at so many things in this relationship, and whatnot—but instead I made a film that of course takes its point of departure from Armin, but which...tells you much more than what I could have told about Armin. And that, that really was a decision for life. —rWF On The mAkIng OF 13 moons —jessIcA rIzzO And cATherIne sheehy, PrOducTIOn drAmATurgs

BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE YALE REPERTORY THEATRE is dedicated to the production of new plays and bold interpretations of classics and has produced well over 100 premieres—including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists—by emerging and established playwrights. Eleven Yale Rep productions have advanced to Broadway, garnering more than 40 Tony Award nominations and eight Tony Awards. Yale Rep is also the recipient of the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. Professional assignments at Yale Repertory Theatre are integral components of the program at Yale School of Drama, the nation’s leading graduate theatre training conservatory. Established in 2008, Yale’s BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE is an artist-driven initiative that devotes major resources to the commissioning, development, and production of new plays and musicals at Yale Rep and across the country. Among the Center’s programs, a key component is its Production Enhancement Fund, which provides financial support for productions at other theatres of works commissioned by and/or first produced at Yale Rep. The Center also facilitates residencies of playwrights and composers at Yale School of Drama. Permanently endowed by a gift from the Robina Foundation, and supported by additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and individual donors, the Center is named in honor of James H. Binger (1916–2004), the noted businessman, theatre impresario, and philanthropist who created the Robina Foundation. To date, the Center has supported the work of more than forty commissioned artists as well as the world premieres and subsequent productions of twelve new American plays and musicals—including David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette, Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl, and Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff’s new adaptation of In a Year with 13 Moons by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, all of which will premiere at Yale Rep this season. Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, adapted by Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff, was the first commissioned play supported by the Center to receive its world premiere at Yale Rep. In 2010, Notes had its West Coast premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and its New York premiere at Theatre for a New Audience, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The Center also supported the world premiere co-production of Rinne Groff’s Compulsion at Yale Rep, Berkeley Rep, and The Public Theater; the world premiere of the Yale Rep-commissioned On the Levee by Marcus Gardley, Todd Almond, and Lear deBessonet at Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3; and the world premiere of Maggie-Kate Coleman and Anna K.
