ATC: We Live Here (21-24 May 2014)

The American Theatre Company is pleased to announce its May production We Live Here by Zoe Kazan, directed by Carrie Ellwanger

A wedding. A secret. A tragedy echoing from the past into the present.

Join the ATC in May for a modern exploration of the themes of classical Greek tragedy in a brand new play combining both gentle humor and searing drama.

Granddaughter of legendary director Elia Kazan, playwright and actress Zoe Kazan is making a name for herself in her own right both in Hollywood and New York. We Live Here was first performed off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theater Club in 2011 and was just published in 2013. The ATC is proud to be presenting this very new play from a fresh young feminist voice in American theatre.

Lumen Theatre, Chaussée de Boondael 36, Ixelles (just behind Flagey)

BSS: King Lear (24-28 June 2014)

King Lear is probably the greatest of Shakespeare’s plays. Some consider it as “the grandest effort of his imagination”. Human beings were never so cruel and ‘unnatural’ as in this play; yet human beings were never shown with so much goodness, loyalty and self-sacrifice as in this play. Kings, beggars, and fools; fathers, sons and daughters; love, lust, greed, corruption, violence and war: all of these themes have a place in King Lear.

The play will be performed from 24 to 28 June 2014 at BRONKS Theatre(main stage) in Rue Marché Aux Porcs, just off  Sainte-Catherine.
