2021/22 Student Matinee Series
Welcome! We look forward to safely welcoming you and your students back for the 2021/22 season. We have sorely missed the energy that student audiences bring to live performances, and we know that a strong production can powerfully shape students' relationship to curricular material. Your reservation includes discounted tickets, lesson plans, study guides, and post-show talkbacks with the cast. For booking and other information, please contact Hannah Spear, Artistic Associate, at email@example.com or 215.829.9002 x106.
A Philadelphia Premiere by Lynn Nottage Directed by Amina Robinson
ABOUT THE PLAY
Undine has it all – success, love, and a fabulous wardrobe. When her life begins to unravel in one hilarious reversal after another, she is forced to return to a life she had long left behind. In this satirical comedy, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage asks Undine – and all of us – whether you can really ever go home again.
