A Special Presentation of METLab: Plays in Progress
Inheritance by Lydia Hadfield
FRIDAY JUNE 26, 8pm
Inheritance takes a dark and comic look at three women’s expectations of what they’re owed, what they will give, and what they’ll take for themselves. Clementine becomes heir to her ancestral home and unhinges the door of her antebellum fantasies. The caretaker of the home, Puddles, shares her unvarnished perspective. Mariah Lee Lee, the squatter, watches, and plots. One explosive episode propels them all towards fulfillment of their skewed worldview. Following the reading, there will be a live talkback and discussion led by producer and Dramaturg J.D. Sivert and featuring the playwright, Lydia Hadfield, the director, Tabetha White, and the cast. Audiences online are encouraged to offer feedback and answer questions posed during the post-show discussion as a way of assisting the playwright to achieve her vision for this unfinished work.
