THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING
PRAGUE FRINGE 2015
Finegan Kruckemeyer's THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING is a wildly imaginative and profoundly humble play about three sisters who are abandoned in the forest by their father and forced to find their own way in the world. One goes left, one goes right, and one stays right where she started.
"This wood is a doorway to everything that's outside our house and our village and our childhood and our experiences. There may be bears out there... The only thing we can not do is go back. And that's okay—life is not for going back."
Kruckemeyer's play—about survival, finding yourself, and growing up—elegantly weaves together the fantastical and the everyday to narrate the separation of three sisters and the lifetime’s worth of stories they collect along their journeys home.
THIS GIRL LAUGHS, THIS GIRL CRIES, THIS GIRL DOES NOTHING is the recipient of the prestigious Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award and was first produced in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It has since been performed hundreds of times and in four different languages. Our production is the Prague premiere.
