Here, in this house of lamentations, from the very lips of darkness,
issues forth a story of, frankly, quite maudlin beginnings.
Sit, be comfortable, listen as I describe the burial of Womana…’
Written & Directed by Teone Reinthal
Assistant Director/Choreographer Jean Tally
Original Music performed by Steve Reinthal
This play is hieroglyphic; an epic, transcendental poem narrating the inner worlds of fractured identities moving towards wholeness. Do not be alarmed! Such poetry speaks to the hearts of all lost and lonely children, it is healing balm for the awkwardness of youth and medicine for sleepless old souls. Fear Not! The Serpent’s Book of Lamentations is a stocking filled with lullabies, rhymes and murmurs…a pantomime of sighs.
