Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a human with a grape for a head: in Corinne Donly's buoyant adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch's 15th century triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, syllables combine to make words and people to make lovers. An elegy to vestiges, a paean to puns, and a theater of peace, Wood Calls Out to Wood pursues Bosch's old paradise through a new alchemy of love, language, and radical tenderness.
"Strange and gorgeous...just as Donly’s language attends, through pun and playfulness, to the materiality of language, Hughes's production invites audiences to engage with the structure of the theater itself." ~Culturebot
"...a sublime combination of existential depth and silliness...a springboard for each audience member to discover their own interpretation." ~Theater is Easy
