ABOUT DON JUAN COMES HOME FROM IRAQ
by Paula Vogel
directed by Blanka Zizka
March 19, 2014 – April 20, 2014
Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel (HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE) joins creative forces with Wilma Artistic Director Blanka Zizka, along with a full company of actors and designers, to develop a World Premiere production in Philadelphia, DON JUAN COMES HOME FROM IRAQ. Playing with time and space, this is a tale of one Marine’s return home from war and discovery that his lover is missing. Searching for her, he embarks on a surrealistic tour through the streets and history of Philadelphia. This collaborative project is inspired by DON JUAN RETURNS FROM THE WAR (written in 1936 by Bertolt Brecht’s younger contemporary Ödön von Horváth) and grounded in the experiences of recent veterans who often return from Iraq or Afghanistan to a home where most of the population has little direct connection with war.
