Greenland The Red String Ensemble
About This Show
Greenland follows a family in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado who reunite after a devastating event changed their lives forever 10 years ago. The piece opens with a dead deer being dropped onto the living room floor of the family cabin. Is it possible that this dead animal might just get up and leave? It’s possible. But what’s more probable is that Sissy, Ryan, Chappy and Jazz will watch this animal rot and become accustomed to, or perhaps even in love with, its stench.
