Spring Ex “Edith”
Yale Repertory Theatre
March 31 – April 2


Edith, an original play by Noah T. Parnes, shows us a family thrown into chaos when a giant pillar of salt–that says she’s Lot’s wife from the Bible??– comes crashing into their living room. While an impending civil war sits pretty on the horizon and two angels attempt to quell the madness, the pillar of salt threatens the very fabric of the play with her impossible presence and, unexpectedly, her call to action. Interrogating the murky borders between obedience and disobedience, Edith asks us how to dismantle the status quo through unconventional storytelling and a fundamentally queer lens, inviting us to turn around and see joy in the carnage.
