Playwright(s): Susanna Fournier
Susanna Fournier, Choreography by Amanda Acorn
Sarah, a former madam, is 279 years old. She has defied Death, survived the toppling of regimes and centuries of war. When a mysterious plague breaks out, she is forced to relocate to a quarantined zone with her four young wards – girls who have been orphaned by the women she once employed. When a strange doctor arrives and discovers the girls are plague-positive, Sarah must choose between treating the girls with an experimental, new drug or no treatment at all.
“Fournier has tortured history…she’s compressed wars of conquest, religious wars, colonial wars and wars on terror into a single fictional war that alludes to them all.”
