Blatant Attempts at Understanding:
Words to Stage

This series of scenes, monologues, and dramatic sketches is written by Melanie Zipin and edited and staged by Virus Theater. The audience is invited on an introspective journey, which combines a sense of place with a quest for purpose. Using humor and heartache to uncover and expose our rawest, innate vulnerabilities, the universal truths at our core are revealed – our desire to understand and be understood. The high deserts of New Mexico provide ample space and vantage for this journey, with small tales of local folk and everyday occurrences which lead us through this wilderness, through time, into our very human trenches, and up to the mountaintop for reflection.

Oeddy Wrecks:
An Escape from Greek Tragedy

In this Virus Theater Original work, Oedipus Rex is delivered from his terrible destiny by an individual member of the Greek Chorus, and together they embark on an odyssey of self-discovery.  Confronting notions of fate, fault and forgiveness, their quest plumbs the meaning and power of our personal stories -- and exposes those who want to control the narrative for their own purposes.
