Broom Street Theater is proud to present Imogen(s), a brand new “Princess and the Pauper”-type story by local playwright Christopher William Wolter and directed by UW-Madison alumna, Niccole Carner.

Imogen(s) follows a young royal as she abandons her status as regent in order to reunite with her husband, and a young peasant girl who seizes the crown and attempts to reorder the world that is crumbling around her.

This production challenges the presentation of women as objects and images, examines the highly political nature of love, and evaluates the self-destructive power of perceived scarcity. Join us for this thoughtful, visually captivating production which will leave you contemplating the messy world we find ourselves in currently.

Broom Street Theater is proud to present a World Premiere of a new adaptation of Antigone by the “most dangerous philosopher in the west”, Slavoj Žižek. This non-traditional telling with all female leads, directed by Christopher William Wolter, features masks, movement, and mayhem : an ethical and political intervention into the complexities of desire; a biting commentary on the conflicts between the state and the family, the individual and the collective, love and duty, revolutionary violence and the security of the status quo.

The mostly-female cast features Stacey Garbarski as Antigone, Jamie England as Creon, Maddi Conway as Haemon, Melissa Minkoff as Tiresias, and Clarice Lafayette as Ismene.
