La MaMa, ETC will present Irina Brook's Shakespeare's Sister (or La Vie Matérielle) at the historic Ellen Stewart Theater from September 20th through October 3rd, 2013. Adapted and directed by Irina Brook, daughter of legendary director Peter Brook, Shakespeare's Sister (or La Vie Matérielle) is based in part on both a Marguérite Duras’s collection of essays on daily life, La Vie Matérielle, and Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, set at a fantasy dinner party where five women prepare the cuisine while singing, dancing and discussing their place in the world.
The cast includes a diverse group of female artits: OBIE Award winner Winsome Brown as Virginia Woolf, novelist and former French Vogue editor Joan Juliet Buck (Julie and Julia) as Maugerite Duras, actress Nicole Ansari (“Deadwood," Tom Stoppard's Rock 'n' Roll), concert violin soloist Yibin Li and British singer/songwriter Sadie Jemmett.
This looks to be a unique experience. A video preview of the French production is below.
