Barbara Hammond talks about the undercurrents running through her most recent play TERRA FIRMA. This discussion and audience Q & A will be moderated by Melissa Unger
TERRA FIRMA is a dark comedy, set in a disturbingly not-so-distant future. Years after a conflict known as the Big War, a tiny kingdom jutting out of the sea wrestles with the problems of forming a nation—and opposing notions of what it means to be a citizen, a country, and a civilization.
TERRA FIRMA was originally a commission for the Royal Court Theatre, the premiere venue for new writing in the UK. This production is a World Premiere and is co-presented by Baruch and THE COOP Off-Broadway’s hottest new company.
Barbara Hammond’s other plays include We Are Pussy Riot Or Everything Is P.R.; Visible From Four States; and The Eva Trilogy: Eden, Enter the Roar.
