LULU follows the rise and fall of one dangerous and doomed creature: the sexually educated but passive woman who will go by any name her lovers wish to call her. From presiding over high society Parisian balls to selling herself in London basement rooms, Lulu ruins those around her, and is ruined, for love. Donald Lyons called LULU a “symphony – or rather a cacophony – of deotic sexual rhetorics….among the supreme masterpieces of nineteenth-century theatre.” Director Spencer Golub calls LULU “very nasty.”

An Eyes Wide Shut for an earlier century’s turn, LULU is a sex tragedy - or comedy - about how basic need and desire are made base by social convention, bourgeois morality and the fantasy life of the mind. Smart, dark, beautiful, twisted, tragic, haunting – you will not forget LULU, or Lulu.

Our Hands Are Sore From Praying

Come join the Rites and Reason Theatre for their first Spring 2010 production.

Written by a Jamaican born and raised in the United States (Janine Heath '10), Our Hands Are Sore From Praying is an analysis of the cultural and historical power structures that affect the lives of Jamaicans in the United States and of those who remain in Jamaica. "Hands" is an immigrants tale about about how easy it is to loose your roots and how difficult it can be to reclaim them. It tells the story of one man ruined by forces beyond his control, and another attempting to redeem his people.

Rites and Reason Theatre, 155 Angell Street

Thursday - Saturday: Doors open @ 6:30, Play begins @ 7pm
Sunday: Doors open @ 2:30, Play begins @ 3pm
