THE SAINT PLAYS by Erik Ehn

Four short plays from Ehn's epic cycle, inspired by the fragmented narratives of Catholic saints
Barnard College | Spring 2011 | Austin E. Quigley Prize
"In a broken world, where any kind of fixity of faith or meaning has become deeply suspect, an ensemble of six seekers pillage the radioactively decaying religious tradition of Catholic sainthood for new forms of meaning, holiness, and transcendence. With four plays chosen from a cycle of over one hundred, Katie Lupica's directing thesis production of The Saint Plays by Erik Ehn takes on the stories of Joan of Arc the mystic, George the dragon slayer, Agnes the child martyr, and Christopher the giant. Brief, experimental, and image-rich these plays break down and break through established modes of approaching the divine and ask what that is useful survives."
