This week on Artwaves: A character study per guests’ extensive research of and commitment to the characters in Marcus Gardley’s The House That Will Not Stand, which had its world premiere in 2014 at Berkley Rep. It’s the next production of Redwood Curtain, on stage Thursdays-Saturdays through May 26.
About "The House that Will Not Stand" New Orleans, 1836. Following an era of French colonial rule and relative racial acceptance, Louisiana’s “free people of color” are prospering. Beatrice, a free woman of color, has become one of the city’s wealthiest women through her relationship with a rich white man. A bewitching new drama of desire, jealousy, murder and voodoo, The House That Will Not Stand received its world premiere at Berkeley Rep in January 2014.
