Love, Death & Other Dimensions: New Play Untethered
Mountain View Mausoleum (Altadena, CA)
Staging a love story at a mausoleum isn’t the most obvious choice, but it adds a poignant layer to Ovation Award winner Julia Edwards’ new play, Untethered. A love story for the 21st century, Untethered explores the nature of love and what it means to attempt to spend your life with another person. Incorporating everything from a sea siren to a portal into a time-bending fourth dimension with choreographed movements, Untethered is an adventurous journey into our greatest hopes and fears. Plagued by nightmares of her boyfriend, Ari’s demise, Ellie pops the question out of the blue. Unfortunately, that sends Ari into a commitment-phobic panic. That’s when things get weird. Suddenly Ellie’s life hangs in the balance as Ari attempts to tether himself to what truly matters. See this original work at Mountain View Mausoleum in Altadena.
