The Yale Dramatic Association Spring Ex

Content Warning: This play includes references to sexual assault.

While introducing their significant other to their parents, a person’s concept of reality is thrown into chaos when a giant pillar of salt–that says she’s Lot’s wife from the Bible??–comes crashing into the 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.
