Theater Emory presents 'The Park: an expressionist fable' at Historic Fourth Ward Park ampitheater

March 5, 2020

ATLANTA – Theater Emory announces a free production of new work, “The Park: an expressionist fable” at Historic Fourth Ward Park amphitheater performing April 2-5. Written by Caitlin J. Hargraves, the collaborative, devised work features an all-student cast. 

“’The Park: an expressionist fable’ is a piece that I’ve been thinking about for almost a decade since I first read Frank Wedekind’s “Mine HaHa, or on the bodily education of young girls,” says Hargraves, director and theater studies faculty member. "With the help of a brilliant cast of young women and designers I’ve adapted the story, with a dash of circus and big brother thrown in, and we’re left with a feminist take on a harrowing Victorian era fairy tale."

Performances of “The Park: an expressionist fable” are April 2 - 3 at 7:00 p.m. and April 4-5 at 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. at Historic Fourth Ward Park Amphitheater on the Atlanta Beltline, 680 Dallas St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30308. Patrons are encouraged to sign up for a free reservation on theater.emory.edu but walk up attendees are also welcome.  Street parking is available or park at Ponce City Market across the street from the park.

“The Park: an expressionist fable” is part of Emory’s Embodied: A Festival of Human Health and the Arts.
