Two River Theater extends run of Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England

860

Lesbian storyline adds five more days to satisfy patron demand.

Two River Theater Co. in Red Bank, under the leadership of artistic director John Dias and managing director Michael Hurst, announced a second extension for the theater’s world premiere of Madeleine George’s Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England, directed by Ken Rus Schmoll. Due to audience demand, six additional performances are on sale now.

Madeleine George’s brilliant play is all about a lesbian college dean, Dean Wreen, and the battle she faces in trying to cut college costs by closing a museum. She invites her colleague and ex-girlfriend to come live with her to help her through her difficult time. Also living in the same place is the dean’s current girlfriend and former student, Andromeda. 

Following these three through their time together is both entertaining and enlightening, says Danielle Zarcaro, writer for the Asbury Park Lesbian Relationship Examiner. “This play is incredibly funny, witty, smart, and downright fun to experience. You can feel comfortable bringing anyone with you; it is easily relatable for anyone of any sexuality. There is some sexual content of the straight and lesbian kind, but it isn’t graphic, and it fits into the play perfectly.

“The play portrays lesbian relationships as they should be portrayed: just as crazy, complicated, and loving as any other relationship,” says Zarcaro. “But the play also stays true to reality–that relationships are important, but there are always other things going on in life that can complicate things.”

The extended calendar includes new performances on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 7 pm; Thursday, Nov. 17 at 8 pm; Friday, Nov. 18 at 8 pm; Saturday, Nov. 19 at 3 pm and 8 pm; and Sunday, Nov. 20 at 3 pm. Tickets are going fast; the show must close on Nov. 20 and will not be extended again. A YouTube video tells a little about the storyline of the East Coast premier.
