Iron ShoesReturn

Playwright Michelle Carter Composer Janet Kutulas Lyricist Janet Kutulas Producer Shotgun Players  [Website] Description A contemporary, neo-feminist, folk opera brimming with humor, Iron Shoes transforms Eastern European fairy tales into a fantastical performance experience. A modern woman encounters three innocent girls, each suffering monstrous cruelties. She tries to understand their stories, but also tries to control their stories. It’s a real test to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.” Especially when they’re made of iron. Running Time 2:00 Performers Angel Adedokun   [Second Girl]
