Rehearsals in April **Please note rehearsals are outdoors*
The Cardboard Countess explores the developing friendship between a troubled teen and a homeless woman who wears a gown of garbage bags and proclaims she is a Countess. United by concerns of conservation, and feeling isolated from their communities, their friendship grows.
The Cardboard Countess tackles many issues of women, including homelessness, over consumption, mental health, teen depression, and the difficulties of forging human connection in today's increasingly technological world.
At times tragic, at times hilarious, the ongoing battle between these two characters, both fighting to be heard in an ever hostile world, is a play audiences of all ages can relate to. As EVER's real world collides with the COUNTESS' imagined reality, EVER finds bravery and frees the COUNTESS in a heart wrenching open ending.
Ms. Goring received 2 residences to work on this play: Artist in Residence at San Gabriel National Monument, and at Hot Springs National Park.
