With an open ended postmodernist play like Hamletmachine, the amount of individual creativity that can go into the production can feel boundless. But who knew some of that creativity could carry over to the web? Director Jonathon Hendrickson, A12, and Set Designer Cara Guappone, A12, set out over winter break to document their adventures “building” a Hamletmachine as a means to help give students an idea of what the 3P’s show might have in store for them.

This weekend, Tufts’ Pen, Paint and Pretzels (3Ps) will present Yerma as their annual Spring Major Production. Yerma, written by Federico García Lorca and directed by Jeewon Kim (A’11), is a play and “tragic poem” about a childless woman living in rural Spain who desperately wants to conceive. Laden with ambiguity and subtle cultural critique, Yerma is sure to leave audiences talking after the curtain closes.
Performances are this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (March 3, 4 & 5) at 8PM in the Balch Arena Theater. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased at the Balch Arena Box Office by calling 617-627-3493 or any day of the week from 9AM-5PM.
