Her, Across the River

Written by Hope Villanueva

An American woman on an escape from reality in Bangkok befriends a novice Buddhist monk. As they work through their wounds together, their lost loved ones journey on in the spirit world, all trying to achieve some level of peace and maybe even enlightenment. Told thru movement in a magical realism frame, this play explores the journey from grief to the start of healing. CJay Philip directs this important world premiere.

The Christians, a new play about the seemingly insurmountable distance that exists when people of the same religion hold different beliefs. Stunning in its theatricality, this production will feature multiple choirs from area churches. Prescient in its investigation of the commercialization of religion, this play spotlights the sensitive and challenging obstacles of all successful organizations.

CJay Philip directed the main stage performances of the WOW (Women of the World) Festival 2012 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
