Don DeLillo's new play Love-Lies-Bleeding will also be part of the forthcoming season. The drama, which will run June 17-25, 2006, is a co-production with the Steppenwolf Theater Company and will be mounted at the Terrace Theatre. Love-Lies-Bleeding, according to production notes, "focuses on the last years of a free-spirited artist, now left invalid after a second stroke." The production will be directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Amy Morton.
April 27-May 28th, 2006 - Premier of DeLillo's play, Love-Lies-Bleeding, at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago; Amy Morton directing. The Steppenwolf describes the play as follows:
Moving back and forth in time, Love-Lies-Bleeding focuses on the last years of a free-spirited artist, now left invalid after a second stroke. Hovering over the artist's lifeless body are his son, estranged ex-wife and younger wife, locked in metaphysical struggle over the ultimate question: do they agree to a mercy killing or let him die his natural course? As DeLillo masterfully tackles the ethics of their decision, he amplifies what it truly means to be alive. Like the spiky tropical flower that shares its name, Love-Lies-Bleeding is both hauntingly beautiful and sharp as a knife.
May 2, 2005 - An initial performance of Love-Lies-Bleeding performed at the Fulton Street Theater in Boise, Idaho, directed by Don himself. And here's a nice blog item (scroll down) on the event by Janet Holmes of Boise State, which explains how this happened (there's a connection through "Game 6" director Michael Hoffman).
