The Mettawee River Theatre Company, Ensemble-in-Residence of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, returns to the Pulpit Green with Out of the Past: Celebrating 40 Years of the Mettawee Journey. The series of outdoor performances will include scenes and songs from four decades of Mettawee productions, including pieces that have never been performed at the Cathedral, on Friday, September 11; Saturday, September 12; and Sunday, September 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).
The Mettawee River Theatre Company, founded in 1975, presents original theater productions that incorporate masks, giant figures, puppets and other larger than life visual elements with live music, movement and text. These works draw on the myths, legends and folklore of the world’s many cultures. Out of the Past features appearances by many beloved characters such as Aristophanes’ gluttonous dung beetle, Brecht’s forlorn lovers in The Caucasian Chalk Circle, and the two long lost brothers of Valentyne and Orson
The production is designed and directed by Ralph Lee, Artistic Director of the Mettawee River Theatre Company.
